The firm, which is dedicated to promote, support, handhold and mentor startup entrepreneurs, especially among women, concluded the seminal programme, ‘Aadya — the Girlpreneur Startup Launchpad’.
Sixty-seven girls from 10 different states participated in the entrepreneurship 18-day-long programme for students of eight to 12 grades. It not only imparted the knowledge about the technical aspects of entrepreneurship, but also had direct interactions with some startups and professionals.
