PRODUCT OFFERING FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS

Business skills training

Many women entrepreneurs have shared they feel lack confidence in skills for planning and managing finance, sales and marketing, and technology to support their businesses. They have also expressed their lack of knowledge of legal and regulatory compliance with the laws of the country, as well as the large enterprises they would like to target as customers for their products and services. There are still some cultural barriers to overcome in the male dominated world of business.

A six module-training package will be available as both online and face-to-face programs to address these gaps felt by entrepreneurs.

Access to finance

The Roadmap 2020 in three major entrepreneurial cities has revealed that most of the women owned businesses are self financed and consequently, have remained in the micro or small scale category, not having been able to scale up. Women need timely and appropriate infusion of finance. We will work with you to build your proficiency in financial planning and projections and the confidence to approach and access bank financing or equity investment. Entrepreneurs will be prepared and then introduced to financing institutions and investors.

Access to Information and networks for your business

The central and state governments in India, and banks/financial institutions have a number of programmes targeted at supporting women’s business enterprises. Two key Ministries are the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. (MSME). CWE gives you information on these and how to apply for them.

Technology for Business

In today’s world, it is imperative to use technology at every stage of developing your product or service, reaching your customers and monitoring and analyzing data from each stage of the business. This includes having a professional website and app, digital marketing and social media capabilities, using the cloud with efficient options like Googledocs, Dropbox etc, low-cost call centre solutions – as few examples.

CWE can help you at every step – from your one-minute business pitch to helping you find the right technology partners.
