Dear Woman Leader,

You have always wanted to make a difference and you already have!

TiE Global invites you to join TiE Global’s Project - All-India Road Show on Women’s Economic Empowerment through Entrepreneurship (Project AIRSWEEE 2.0).

This is a new program to unleash value creation amongst aspiring young women in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in India. The initiative has received funding support from the US Mission in India, U.S. Department of State for a second year!

Under Project AIRSWEE 2.0, TiE Global will conduct 4 day workshops in 5 cities in India, The program will enroll 30 aspiring women entrepreneurs in each workshop city, selected through a rigorous screening process. These 150 mentees will then be introduced to India and US based mentors, who will guide the participants on various aspects of Entrepreneurship. After these workshops, 5 participants from each city will receive intensive mentoring for an additional 6 months to develop some of their ideas into sustainable businesses. All 150 participants will be invited to join TiE’s robust eco-system as members.
