Entrepreneurship Development cell has conducted Business Ideation Festival (BIF) that is jointly facilitated by Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) and Volunteers for Rural Entrepreneurs Advancement Programme (VREAP) for the women studying in the 30 social welfare residential degree colleges for women via online.
Speaking on this occasion, Secretary, TSWREI and TTWREI Societies, Dr. R. S. Praveen Kumar, said ” marginalized women are grossly under-represented in the business landscape of India and lack adequate skills and confidence to start a business. In the era of globalization, marginalized youth have become mere jobseekers than job creators. To bridge this gap, TSWREI and TTWREI Societies have been promoting business entrepreneurship and skill development programs to develop entrepreneurship mindset among young women of social and tribal welfare residential degree colleges with the support of the government of Telangana”.
