Top 100 women entrepreneurs were selected for incubation under Women start-up program by NSRCL, IIM Bangalore. Among which +shweta kulkarni is the only one selected from Pune. Initially, 7000 women all over India had applied for the incubation. After the selection process was done on two levels, Top 100 women were selected and were sent to IIMB for a Boot Camp. In these top 100, Maharashtra holds 10 places.
Shweta Kulkarni has been working for the popularisation of Astronomy since past 6 years. She became CEO of Astron-SHK Trust at the age of 18. +Nimish Aage, +siddharth mehendale and +Aniruddh Deshpande along with few other volunteers joined her for the work and took it forward to produce online courses of astronomy which are now highest rated courses on the “Udemy” platform. These courses hosted by Astron-SHK Trust can be found on www.udemy.com/user/astron-shk-trust/
Shweta put forward the idea of creating an online and on-campus platform to provide the knowledge of astronomy on various levels in purely scientific temperament and with a creative way. Which made her get selected in top 100 women entrepreneurs of India. She will now be incubated in Pune by IIM Nagpur where she will be provided with further guidance and funds by Department of Science and Technology Government of India.
“It was a rough journey, but my parents, Astron’s volunteers and even WSP cohorts were extremely supportive. It was fun going through the stages of selection and passing them with flying colours. I am glad I got the opportunity to be in IIM Nagpur and also in IIM Bangalore where I had new experiences, learnings and also got an opportunity to meet with amazing women entrepreneurs all around the country. I believe I will be able to make a mark of India in the field of Astronomy.” Says Shweta.
Being the youngest amongst the women selected from Maharashtra for this program, and for her broad vision, Shweta’s efforts are commendable. She becomes motivation for the new generation of India.
