To support diversity and innovation across the business, Dentsu Aegis Network along with its digital performance agency iProspect, have formalised an initiative to mentor female start-ups in India.
 
The initiative Female Foundry aims to drive diversity and inclusion in business. It provides access to tools, training, connections and resources, empowering female entrepreneurs to thrive in today’s complex digital economy.

Women play an important role in every aspect of business today – from leading companies to building new ventures. To succeed in what one believes in, needs constant learning.”
