Why women entrepreneurs?

It is a fact that women entrepreneurs are not only underserved in today's economy but it is harder for them to raise money. If they participated on a level playing field on the global stage, the amount that would be added to the global GDP could run into trillions of dollars. Women-led companies are also known to focus on profit and impact on society and return 78 cents for every dollar of investment (vs 31 cents returns by male-run startups).

Level Up is our effort to do more for women entrepreneurs by providing opportunities to learn, network, and grow.

Hear what the founders had to say about their experience at Level Up.

Priya Jalan

Founder, Binge English

I would like to express my gratitude to my incredible mentor Mr. Sanjeet Srivastava for being so kind and encouraging. It was an out and out enlightening mentoring session wherein I learnt a lot and felt much more confident and inclined towards my goal. Thanks a ton to the team Level Up for this empowering initiative.

Rashmi Sharma

Founder & CEO, Tomorrowsmith Foundation

I cannot even explain how grateful I am for this program. My mentor helped me recognise what was keeping me stuck. He patiently heard and understood my challenges and helped me think of solutions. In just over a month, I have been able to achieve what I couldn't in the last one year. This was possible only because of his non-judgemental and rational suggestions.


Founder, Kodate Services

What Level Up offers is the insight into where you are as a startup and where you should go from there, how to prioritize and take it forward. They were a key differentiating factor in my entrepreneurial journey. The highlight for me was the mentoring support. The mentors and speakers for the workshops were industry heavyweights with a wealth of knowledge.

Shweta Thakare

Co-founder, GramHeet

I loved the OKRs masterclass & have also started implementing it by taking the masterclass exercises to the team. Moreover, the networking huddle was a window where I had the opportunity to build a network along with having a forward driven conversation with experts. The 1-on-1 mentoring sessions helped me improve my brand's pitch deck making me & GramHeet investment ready.

Ritika Garg

Co-founder, Uplifters

Level Up has given me a chance to meet a lot of women founders. I have learned a lot from their journey about what they have been through that has helped me to improve my entrepreneurial journey.

Meera V

Co-founder, Mayaakatah Hub

I got the network support, I was able to meet a lot of like-minded women founders in this community. Also, the mentor support was quite understanding and the way the masterclass & the program was structured made the entire journey wonderful.

Hemali Turakhia

Founder & CEO, Jyppzer Kids

Level Up has helped us tremendously because they have matched the right mentor for us who comes from the education industry himself. He helped us with very basic growth hacks that are very necessary for early stage businesses

Supriya Bhuwalka

Founder, Coding & More

I am looking for impact funding and I have actually got leads today that would help me reach out to the right people. I feel that this personal interaction & this feeling that you can collaborate was a great takeaway with the peer meetup
