We invite you to come and engage with the "Mentor on Road" representatives as they seek to engage you to explore trade opportunities with India while learning from female business owners in the US and discussing opportunites for connecting Small to Medium sized women enterprises here in the US to those back in India.

The Mentor On Road team seeks to understand the best practices of women empowerment in the USA for increasing the participation of Indian women in Indian economic activity, which today stands at a low of 9% compared to 62% in the USA.
