Indian Women Social Entrepreneurs Network: The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai (PAS Chennai seeks proposals for a project titled 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. The project will 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. The participants 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. IWSEN will also serve as a platform to trigger social and cultural change in how women are viewed by providing increased economic empowerment and financial independence to them. Where appropriate, the grantee will highlight best practices from the United States and emphasize the benefits to the U.S. economy from the development of this network. 1. Enhance the operating environment and networking capacity of women social entrepreneurs in India with attention to replicating and scaling, as evidenced by a pre and post-project survey. 2. Guide the participants to form a pan-India network of women social entrepreneurs founded on practical knowledge and information sharing, as evidenced by the establishment of IWSEN.3. Use the IWSEN platform to successfully advocate for support and funding for women-led social enterprise, leading to their economic and social empowerment and at the same time positively impacting their communities.
