WE HUB Held A Workshop For 85 Differently Abled Women To Spark Thoughts On World Disability Day

Hyderabad, 02 December 2022: WE HUB, Government of Telangana’s first and only state-led incubator to foster and promote women entrepreneurship, facilitated an exposure visit to 85 Women with Disabilities on account of World Disability Day. WE HUB designed the workshop to help initiate thought processes on women entrepreneurship. The women were encouraged to share any ideas they had that they might later develop into profitable business ventures at the end of the session.

The women also interacted with student innovators from WE Hub’s in-house program WE Alpha and other students of B. Vissam Raju Institute of Information and Technology Hyderabad (BVRITH), who showcased their prototypes on assistive technology. The prototypes included ST-AN-DE (Stress, Anxiety, Depression), Learning Videos, an Automatic Ventilator, Walk-Mate, Touch Me Not, Move Trash, Smart Stick, and Smart Shoe.

In her interaction with the women, Deepthi Ravula, CEO of WE HUB, said, “In the four years of WE Hub’s work, we have noticed that the number of women entering into technological entrepreneurship is minimal. This has prompted us to plan for a mechanism that addresses the critical need for women to develop their skills and mindsets, thereby creating a way to ensure gender parity. Entrepreneurship for persons with disabilities effectively reduces their unemployment rates and increases their competencies and social inclusion. Moreover, entrepreneurship is an effective way to introduce people with disabilities to self-employment opportunities so they can become self-sufficient and independent.

We look forward to nurturing confidence and competence in this specific sector and developing capabilities such as problem-solving, creativity and social skills amongst the selected.”

Over the past four years, WE-HUB has been actively working towards enabling Women-led start-ups across sectors to scale and accelerate through global market access. Till now, WE-HUB has incubated 238 technology-enabled start-ups by Women founders.
