Business Standard , Mar 08, 2018

The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) on Thursday said it has tied-up with NITI Aayog for the Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP) initiative.

According to FICCI, NITI Aayog's dedicated cell will provide women entrepreneurs a platform where various stakeholders will connect to give a boost to their initiatives.

"Through a joint programme, FICCI and NITI Aayog shall provide hand-holding, mentorship, capacity building, scaling up and networking support to 100 technology led women enterprises over a period of five years," FICCI said in a statement.

It added that FICCI and NITI Aayog will also undertake policy advocacy towards formulation of policies and schemes that foster women entrepreneurship by identifying the existing gaps.

"FICCI is fully committed to work with NITI Aayog towards strengthening the entrepreneurship ecosystem for women in particular," said Nirankar Saxena, Deputy Secretary General, FICCI.

"The women entrepreneurship ecosystem across the world has immense potential but is faced with financial and social barriers. Our aim is to provide a level playing field to women entrepreneurs," Saxena added.
