These brilliant women, most with multiple degrees, including PhDs, come from a culture where they still find it difficult to raise investment capital, despite the fact that Indian women entrepreneurs have been responsible for a number of $100 million-plus success stories
An Australian-first program is helping a new wave of Indian women break through the cultural and business glass ceiling. In what is the first Australian initiative of its kind, corporate advisory firm - CEO Strategic has launched a specialist program to support some of India’s most innovative women entrepreneurs raise investment capital directly from international investors.
Hello and welcome to our wonderful Project. The Virangana Project is primarily about giving Indian women opportunity. The opportunity to show the world that they are motivated, innovative and driven to succeed. It also offers them the opportunity to put their Start-Up ideas in front of international investors who will be judging them on the strength of their business acumen and entrepreneurial sprit – rather than on their gender, race or religion.
Australia India Business Council (AIBC) Women in Business (WIB) Chapter has announced to support The Virangana Project, a Not-For-Profit initiative aimed at bridging the gap between the Australian and India women’s Start-Up communities, on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
