  • In our society each gender is assigned a role which has some expectations associated with it. These result in gender stereotyping. We face this stereotyping almost everywhere like home, work, society & with self. This makes it very challenging for women entrepreneurs in growing their startups. A few examples are expecting women to be the caregiver at home, assuming women would quit work at some point or the other and not taking them seriously etc. Times are changing and the shift in these gender roles has started. More and more women are challenging these stereotypes and proving them wrong. WE February at Bangalore is focused on celebrating this shift. To inspire and equip more women entrepreneurs with the strength and courage needed to handle these issues and come out successful.

  • Headstart's initiative catering to Women Entrepreneurs, WE (Women Entrepreneurs), was started in March 2015 with the vision to empower, inspire and motivate more women to startup. We work towards this vision through our meetups, mentoring sessions, workshops, networking, newsletters etc. The initiative is run by a passionate bunch of people,determined to impact the lives and businesses of as many Women Entrepreneurs as possible with a mantra - "We win, when u win!". It has been organized so far in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Hyderabad. 2017 will see WE reach Chennai, Jaipur, Kolkata, Kochi, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Pune. WE session happens every other month. 
  • Headstart Network is India's largest non-profit, volunteer-driven organization supporting early stage startups and entrepreneurs at the grass-root level helping them move to the next growth stage. We support through our various initiatives and meetups that endeavor to solve issues startups face such as funding, hiring, mentorship, inspiration, networking, among others.
