Over 1000 women entrepreneurs from 26 countries are vying for the coveted TiE Women’s Global Pitch Competition this year. In Pune, 58 companies started by women joined the race and TiE Pune selected its winner – Dr. Anuya Nisal of Serigen Medi products P Ltd.
What’s in store for the winner? $100,000 equity-free prize money. Apart from that, mentoring by global leaders and networking with the world. Last year, Pune’s Ahammune Biosciences won the first runner-up award ($25,000/- with mentoring and networking), and this year, TiE Pune looks forward to winning big.
