Hyderabad: WE-Hub’s community slate programme graduated five women-led social enterprises which were supported by the Australian Consulate-General in Chennai on Friday. The five startups include two Hyderabad-based startups Cellerite and Oorvi, Mumbai-based startup Adiro Labs, Bengaluru-based CabDost along with Radius. The mentorship programme offered funding of about AU$60,000 (approximately Rs 30 lakh) granted by the Australian Consulate-General.
The graduation ceremony took place on a webinar platform created by one of the startups supported by the programme called Octa. It was chaired by WE-Hub CEO Deepthi Ravula along with Jayesh Ranjan, IT Secretary, Telangana.
Ranjan said, “Telangana has created multiple avenues for social innovation and WE-Hub’s partnership with Australian Consulate-General in Chennai for the Community Slate acceleration programme has enabled five women-led enterprises to gain access to necessary interventions for acceleration. At WE-Hub, our focus is on encouraging more women-led social enterprises to scale and sustain.”
Through the programme, the five startups received mentoring and market support to scale up their ideas into self-sustaining businesses. The startups are engaged in fields as varied as better electric vehicle chargers, reusing floral waste into consumer products, and creating a tax reporting app for taxi drivers.
