Women led startups creating inspirational growth trajectory with TiE Rajasthan
Winners of TiE Rajasthan’s TiE Women program, mentored by TiE’s industry experts and mentors are creating growth trajectory for their own startups. From applying last year as early stage startups for the program to scaling up their ventures and receiving funding through guidance from TiE mentors, these women founders have shown enormous resilience. Putting together, they have secured funding of about Rs. 4.5 crores from different sources in the past one year apart from showcasing their pitch and winning awards in both India, and the U.K.
Startup founders Dr. Sarika Gupta, Neha Chauhan, Priyanka Garg and Dr. Suphiya Khan are winners of TiE’s exclusive mentoring and pitch program of TiE Women’s first edition. The winners shared their entrepreneurial journey and experience of working with TiE Mentors in a virtual chat organised by TiE Rajasthan for motivating the second edition applicants.
Sheenu Jhawar, Chair of TiE Rajasthan’s mentoring programs, while moderating the panel discussion said that it’s really encouraging to see so many women entrepreneurs leveraging their startups through the TiE ecosystem. Through our mentors we supported more than 40 women founders from Rajasthan in the first cohort of TiE Women last year, many of them have scaled up their startups and are now encouraging more women to start up. Simultaneously, there is a great response for the second cohort, applications for which are open till mid of June, she added.
Dr. Ravi Modani, President of TiE Rajasthan said that we have a global mandate to support women entrepreneurs. TiE Women program is elevating women led startups in more than 40 TiE Chapters across the globe.
