WHO WE ARE
In 2015, India was the 5th largest startup ecosystem in the world, showing a 40% increase in the number of startups; however, only 9% of founders and co-founders in Indian startups are women. There is a problem in the start-up ecosystem for women and Sonder Connect wants to play a significant role in finding the solution. In the long term, our aim is to create a generation of successful women entrepreneurs that are equal players in the vibrant Indian start-up ecosystem.Show less Show more
