Women have the ability to run a company and have entrepreneurship potential. But due to lack of opportunities and information, she is unable to showcase her talent. Now the Women's School of Entrepreneurship has been established to try to empower women by helping them in educating entrepreneurship and startups.

"I have been working with last mile girls and women, and realize that there is a need for such schools which provide tools of entrepreneurship and help them to fly.Although,these last miles and girls will not afford costlier courses, and also language is a barrier.That's why we have been coming in their schools,colleges , universities and village level in their vernacular level,so they can understand it and implement it. We have been collaborating with School,colleges, Universities, NGO and Government to deliver this program" Said Ranjan Mistry, Founder, Women School of Entrepreneurship

There are more possibilities of entrepreneurship from rural backgrounds, hence targeting it and working towards empowerment." Said Deepti Kiran, Co-founder, Women School of Entrepreneurship
