Sheroes startup to power women employment

On the occasion of International women’s day some days back, we at Startup Buzz have our interests continually piqued when especially a women centered startup comes to the fore. This is one such unique initiative.

Sheroes is a recently launched startup portal that helps women empower themselves. It is a career based platform that helps women explore their opportunities. It caters to different women from myriad spheres of life, and ones who possess varying degrees of interest.

It is a startup that connects women to every kind of work that they would seek to do, ranging from full-time employment, part-time, or even internships. It helps professionals build an online presence too. And there is a team looking into the background of companies that look to employ these women, so as to ensure their customers do not land fraudulent deals. The website also continually conducts business and training workshops and is slowly working its way into becoming a large online platform for the urban educated woman who seeks to work and gain independence.

It was founded in 2014, as a career destination designed only for women. Its founder Sairee Chahal’s story is one to take notice of, who in one TED talk she delivered, spoke about how she had faced with gender stereotying during the initial days of her venture in business. This continues to be a male dominated industry, she stated, and that some policies should be tailor made to make it the experience better for women entrepreneurs, so that it paves the way for more women based companies to come to the fore.

“Sheroes” is a word that is a feminine turn on the word ‘heroes’. And in its essence does the captures the same. As it is an enterprise for women, by women.
