Masters Thesis titled;
Towards creating impactful female entrepreneurship empowerment programs in Jaipur, India with lessons from Impact Hub Berlin
As a part of my MA in Media Practice for Development and Social Change (2018-19) at University of Sussex in Brighton, United Kingdom
Entrepreneurs have always been the drivers of the economy and their relentless pursuit towards discovering and developing new markets has played an important role in shaping the society as we see today. However, entrepreneurship has largely been a male-dominated domain and women have remained at its periphery, especially in emerging economies like India. In recent years the Indian public and private sector has pushed for numerous female entrepreneurship empowerment programmes, but have not met expected outcomes. Taking the example of Impact Hub Berlin (IHB), the Berlin edition of the Global Impact Hub network, a successful innovation lab and co-working space , where I interned for over eight weeks in the summer of 2019 to create their five years’ impact report (forthcoming in September 2019) -- the paper seeks to inform IHB and the readers, of the successes and limitations of creating a similar programme or hub in a very different societal framework i.e Jaipur, India
