For College Students

Young COWE team has been working with colleges across Andhra Pradesh to reach out to the girl students and instill a confidence that will allow them to start their own enterprise no matter what age / social background.

We have been noticing that a majority of Indian women are hesitant to start a business completely on their own. Some of the existing entrepreneurs we came across are either second generation entrepreneurs or merely hold namesake positions in their family businesses. What is the problem here?

Women face the hurdle of lacking financial backing in terms of property or income. Money that is set aside for the girl child by her parents goes right into her husband's possession in time of marriage as dowry – leaving her dependent for investments. If the girl's parents are not from a business background, it becomes even more difficult as the family and societal pressure to take up a full-time job mounts on the already financially distressed woman.

Professional colleges are focused on preparing students for a job and are hugely successful in doing so thanks to the burgeoning services sector in many of the Indian metropolises. It seems to be playing as per scheme for a few years until the DROP rate for women substantially increases. The retention rate of women in 9-5 jobs is very low as women at this stage of their life are looking for a career with flexibility. There is a huge gap in the available talent and opportunity which we believe awareness on entrepreneurship can solve.

To counter all these problems that women face we have started the Young COWE initiative in professional colleges to help girl students understand that starting a business is within their reach more
so than they think. We have designed the program to encourage women all the way from inspirational talks from successful women entrepreneurs to getting them Start-up ready by providing nformation, resources and assistance about their industry of interest, acquiring

We at COWE believe that it is never too early or too late to take on entrepreneurship. We encourage students and retired professionals alike to take on the challenge of starting your own business as the
feeling of being your own boss is priceless.
