The Women Entrepreneurship Development Programme (WEDP) sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India aims at training the S&T graduates and diploma holders in the essentials of conceiving, planning, initiating, and launching an economic activity or an enterprise successfully.

The Energy and Resources Institute is a research institute in New Delhi that specializes in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development. Established in 1974, it was formerly known as the Tata Energy Research Institute.

Course Background

Many women after competing studies face difficulties in dealing with the general management of a business and more specifically with such aspects as credit applications, marketing of products or services, and general management. Many small family-owned businesses would benefit if the women behind them had better access to advisory services and training to help them improve their skills as they normally play the most important role.

In this training program, with the help of well-trained experts, women’s trainees will be helped in identifying the right business idea for them and develop the necessary knowledge and skills so that they will be able to evaluate a project idea and if found suitable they will be able to execute and run it successfully.

Besides that, they will be also provided technical training on solar technologies with the help of TERI and external experts.
