Interact with the experts

About the event


Do you have a start-up idea but lack an execution plan? Or, you are a budding entrepreneur who lacks guidance? Well, worry no more!
In line with theme ‘Kickstart and fly’, we will provide budding entrepreneurs a platform to interact with industry experts to overcome the hurdles they are facing. These industry experts are highly accomplished women who are part of Women orbiting Women (WoW). They provide a support system to entrepreneurs who want to make it big in the industry.

More about WoW (Women orbitint Women)

The WoW kitty– model disrupts the existing kitty party culture and brings together women of substance who support other impoverished women to build circles of empowerment through offering business loans at 0% interest. WoW has grown from strength to strength in the past 2 years by having a positive impact on the lives of numerous rural female entrepreneurs with a 100% repayment track record. As of July 2017, the WoW Kitty model has 6 'inspired' chapters, made over 200 loans and raised over 16 lac rupees!
