Speaking to media persons in Press meet at Udupi Press Club here on Tuesday, 9th January, 2018, Dr. Gayathri R., President of POWER & Organizing Chairperson, Power Parbha – 18 said that Platform of Women Entrepreneurs Regd.

The vision of POWER is to unite women entrepreneurs, inspire them and help them realize their dreams and totransform the role of women in business into a dynamic force.

 

POWER has been organizing marketing fairs like Gramotsava to provide a platform for women and rural folk to market their products to a wider community. Due to the demand for more and more opportunities like this, POWER PARBA took shape; the first edition of which was held in 2016.

 

POWER Parba is a festival which celebrates women entrepreneurship. It is a festival conceptualized by team POWER which helps budding women entrepreneurs to showcase their products, services and talent to a wide audience. We aim to bring into this festival, women who are running small home-based businesses in rural and urban areas of Udupi district, women who have a small business establishment (MSMEs), women who want to scale up their enterprise and women whose hobbies can be converted into a source of income.

  • Disseminate marketing, management and technical knowledge.
  • To help women entrepreneurs develop contacts with buyers and networking.
  • Marketing of products and display of projects of MSME’s which are owned or co-owned by women.
  • Marketing of products from rural and tribal run cottage industries.
  • Help in developing new markets and expand existing markets for these women.
