Based on funding availability, this project will seek to train a total of 100 aspiring women entrepreneurs in TAO states, in cohorts of 25 women in four different locations of Warangal, Tirupati, Visakhapatnam, and Bhubaneswar, in basic business principles using the established Academy of Women Entrepreneurs / DreamBuilder curriculum. This program will last approximately eight months and will involve 13 bi-weekly sessions, delivered in a combination of virtual and in-person classes, as well as two in-person bootcamps to provide additional training. Participants must be from 18 to 50 years of age with intermediate or better English skills. Chosen participants should be women who have limited resources to develop a business plan to start or grow their small businesses. The participant cohorts of 25 women (plus three alternates in each location) will take place in Warangal, Tirupati, Visakhapatnam, and Bhubaneswar. A select number of participants will be given the opportunity to make an express application to the American Center New Delhi-based NEXUS business incubator for advanced training. Ideally, the program will be announced with a call for applications on March 8, 2023 (International Women’s Day), and classes will begin in April of 2023. The final bootcamp should be completed by December 2023.
