Targeted at women who run their own company, or who are thinking of setting up their own venture, the seminar explored new age marketing ideas available at little or no cost which can greatly propel any new business.
Maya Shahani, Chairperson of TSCFE, welcomed the participants and spoke about the importance of providing support for new Indian female entrepreneurs and the benefits their successes will bring to the Indian economy.
Maya Shahani said: “We were delighted to welcome so many aspiring entrepreneurs to this event and we hope that we have helped the development of some new successful businesses.
