Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), has joined hands with NITI Aayog for the latter's  Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP) Initiative. NITI Aayog has launched the WEP as a progressive follow on to the recently concluded Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) which celebrated the theme of "Women First, Prosperity for All".

The dedicated cell will provide women entrepreneurs a platform where various stakeholders will connect to give a boost to their initiatives.

After successfully partnering for the Road to GES series and a recently concluded women entrepreneurs' delegation to the United States, NITI Aayog and FICCI have once again joined hands for the WEP.

NITI Aayog today announced that FICCI shall play an important role in both, domestic and international outreach, given the Chambers wide network of offices as well as fourteen strong chapters of FICCI Ladies Organization across the country. FICCI shall connect the WEP to women entrepreneurs, leaders, venture capitalists, academia, angel investors, etc. from across the globe. For this, FICCI will undertake five national and three international outreach and networking events annually.

Through a joint program, FICCI and NITI Aayog shall provide handholding, mentorship, capacity building, scaling up and networking support to 100 technology led women enterprises over a period of five years.

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 shall conduct two stakeholder dialogue meetings towards this and submit the recommendations to NITI Aayog.

"The Women Entrepreneurship Platform is a collaborative, interactive and connected initiative to achieve a common goal, empowering Women Entrepreneurs in the country" said Dr. Anna Roy, Advisor, NITI Aayog at the launch.
