Dear Madam,

Reg: 3rd edition of Women Transforming India Awards

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, March 2018, NITI Aayog has launched Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP), https://wep.gov.in/. WEP envisages to substantially increase and empower women entrepreneurs by addressing information asymmetry and providing access to critical services needed to succeed. It has partnered with a number of key stakeholders like UN, SIDBI, CII, FICCI, NASSCOM, CRISIL etc by which women entrepreneurs can access mentoring, networking and training opportunities while establishing financial and marketing linkages. Also, WEP has partnered with numerous incubators across the country to enable women to successfully execute their business plans

The nominations for the 3rd edition of Women Transforming India Awards, NITI’s flagship initiative, is now open on WEP website. This year awards will be focussed on “Women & Entrepreneurship” and in this regard, stories of exceptional women entrepreneurs who provide innovative solutions to address key development challenges and /or Impact Communities are invited. Interested women entrepreneurs may file their nominations directly on https://wep.gov.in/wti-awards/

Yours sincerely
M Sundar
Joint Director
