Women skilling and employment platform WiT-ACE has partnered with WhatsApp and NITI Aayog’s Woman Entrepreneur Programme (WEP) to introduce StepUp to ScaleUp, an initiative to guide and mentor women entrepreneurs.

Abhijit Bose, Head of WhatsApp India, reiterated the company’s commitment to women entrepreneurship in India, and said that the initiative is aimed at creating a conducive environment by facilitating efficient tools and propositions to help women scale their businesses.

Industry veterans and seasoned entrepreneurs will help participants address their entrepreneurial challenges and journey through five one-to-one mentoring sessions and two masterclasses by experts on a subject of their choice. Physical resources and financial capital are available but mentorship often goes missing.”

While the current programme is accepting participants for future batches, women entrepreneurs enrolled will become part of the WiT-ACE’s alumni community and continue to avail its resources.

Founded in 2018, WiT-ACE is a platform focused on increasing women participation in the STEM workforce. Earlier this month, it secured $1 million as part of its first seed fund led by founders of CitiusTech which will be used for scaling and forging strategic partnerships.
