The IACC, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana Branch launched a unique Bootcamp to Scale Women Entrepreneurial ventures named SHREE on the occasion of Women’s Day 2019. SHREE was launched by Ms. Katherine Hadda, Consul General, US Consulate, Hyderabad along with Mr. Srikanth Badiga (Chairman), Mr. Vijaya Sai Meka (Vice-Chairman) and Ms. Sreedevi Devireddy (Chairperson, Women Entrepreneurship & Empowerment Committee) of IACC AP & TS.
The program is an immersive 2-day boot camp scheduled to be held on 11th & 12th of April in Hyderabad. This will include sessions on various scaling up and going global strategies.
