The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai (PAS Chennai) seeks proposals for its project entitled “Indian Women Social Entrepreneurs Network (IWSEN)”.

This project will:
- invite 40 women social entrepreneurs from India and provide them with tools through which these change-makers’ vision and goals are affirmed, supported, promoted, and propelled to the next level
- highlight the benefit of creating networks of support, knowledge, and resource sharing through localized frameworks, rather than just scaling single business ventures.

A major goal of the project is the creation of the Indian Women Social Entrepreneurs Network (IWSEN), which will be designed, executed, and launched with the collective inputs of the 40 participants.

They will receive practical training to scale their business enterprise through this project and will become founding members and master trainers for future members of IWSEN.

Award Ceiling: $60,000/Award Floor: $55,000.
