U.S. Consulate Concludes Workshops to Advance Women Entrepreneurs in the Green Economy

Hyderabad, March 2: U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad today opened the final workshop of its program “Women Entrepreneurs in the Green Economy,” designed to promote aspiring women business leaders in green business startups.

“Promoting women entrepreneurs and helping advance the green economy are both top priorities for the U.S. Mission here in India,” said U.S. Consul General Jennifer Larson. “This program is a perfect marriage of these two issues. We are promoting the next generation of women business leaders in India while also helping address climate and environmental challenges in new and innovative ways.”

Women Entrepreneurs in the Green Economy is a series of workshops conducted in Warangal, Visakhapatnam, and Hyderabad that trained 40 women entrepreneurs seeking to advance businesses involving renewable energy, pollution reduction technologies, energy-saving devices, and environmental control (emission control) devices. Selected women-led startups from the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha received coaching in hard and soft entrepreneurial skills, mentoring, and support to attract investors.

The final workshop of the program that opened today, held at Bala Vikasa’s Center for Social and Responsible Businesses, is the capstone event for a select group of participants in the program. Over the next three days, 20 of the women entrepreneurs will receive more advanced support and training, as well as opportunities to network with business leaders.

The Women Entrepreneurs in the Green Economy program has been fully funded by the U.S. Consulate in Hyderabad. The workshops have been conducted by the Alliance for Commercialization and Innovation Research (ACIR), which runs the U.S.-funded Nexus incubator program in New Delhi.
