The is to handhold, guide and nurture the women-founded startups. In this edition of Startup Saturday, we will have some successful entrepreneurs as speakers and panellists along with few startups to pitch / demo their idea.

At Headstart Network – we want to sincerely put an effort to reduce some of these barriers and help women come out and explore in a community that helps, learns and grows together. – want to infuse self confidence in first time women entrepreneurs so that they are able to headstart their journey with no constraints felt whatsoever. – want the ecosystem to hear the needs of women entrepreneurs and support them. – want not to compete, but complement and collaborate with existing women entrepreneur groups and initiatives. – want to make the pie bigger for everyone! 

Our Initiative catering to Women Entrepreneurs, WE (Women Entrepreneurship), was started in March 2015 when we observed that the participation of Women in our other initiatives was lesser and that the discussions there were not addressing issues faced specifically by Women. 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 you win!"

WE @ Headstart wants to be a prominent platform to enable Women entrepreneurship where women can get connected with other motivated and determined women, self-help groups, and economic empowering platforms; to share, acknowledge and collaborate on making ideas happen.

“International Women’s Day (IWD), also called International Working Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.” – Wikipedia (International Women’s Day)
