Here is what previous years participants say about WEQ:
WEQ 2011 winner, Sangeeta Banerjee from ApartmentAdda,
“WEQ gave ApartmentADDA a major boost in three ways 1) A substantial platform to pitch the Product 2) Access to highly valuable mentoring before & after the Quest 3) The jackpot of INR 5L that actually helped us to breathe easy and take some bold steps!”
Finalist WEQ 2012, Valerie Wagoner from ZipDial had this to say:
“WEQ is a fantastic program. It is obvious from the huge jump in applicants, the quality and number of highly respected judges participating, and the accomplishments of all of the finalists, that the program has matured to be one of great stature in recognizing women leaders in technology. I was thrilled to participate, not only because it was a great platform for ZipDial, my company, but more importantly for my now richer network of other exceptional entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs. I would highly encourage any entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur to get involved.”
WEQ 2012 Winner, Shalini Pillai Banerjee from BrandIdea:
“WEQ not just enables, supports and nurtures the rare breed of the woman entrepreneur but more importantly, makes it possible for hundreds of woman out there to believe in themselves and take the leap.
It was an honour for me to present at the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women in Computing because of what it stands for. And when I won, I was ecstatic.
And while winning the cash prize was great, the real prize has been that it has provided me with a network to be able to engage with various VCs and other like-minded individuals that can actually help take my company to the next level.”
