Why Climate Ready?
We at Climate Collective strongly believe that one of the strongest ways to achieve a sustainable world is through challenging the current business models. It is our mission to support ideas and businesses which are disruptive and have solutions to solve climate change or pave the way towards sustainability.
But where are the women in this mission?
World over ClimateLaunchpad has 40 percent participants as women founders. However, in India the number is only 10-15%. The aim of Climate Ready is to see 50% women entrepreneurs as a part of ClimateLaunchpad or other such accelerator programs. We want to achieve this by capacity building to hone the skills of business literacy, so that women join accelerators in more numbers and achieve business success at a faster pace.
As highlighted in the Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs (MIWE) 2018, India ranked 52 out of 57 countries in the ability of women entrepreneurs to capitalise on the opportunities offered by their local environments. Some reasons for this paucity include:
Socio-cultural biases against women in business
Barriers to access to financial and knowledge support
Limited role models to inspire future women entrepreneurs
Climate ready is a unique opportunity for women to leverage the support given by our experienced mentors to develop their capacity to apply and gain automatic entry to formal accelerator programs.
