The logistics company UPS signs a pact to train 500 women entrepreneurs in India

US-based logistics giant UPS has partnered with India SME Forum to train 500 women entrepreneurs in India in export and related business, according to a company official.

The training will be conducted by experts in both online and offline modes, said Laura Lane, executive vice president and chief corporate affairs and sustainability officer, UPS.

The official was in the state capital to sign the pact with the India SME Forum.

“The experts will educate women entrepreneurs in the SME segment about rules related to export and help them identify markets for their products, packaging, etc.,” Lane said.

The company will initially train 500 women and plans to expand the program later, she said.

Women-led businesses have increased in India after the pandemic, Laura said, adding that bringing them to export markets will help strengthen them economically.

“Many women have started their business in India but for various reasons they may not find the right market for their products. With this program, we want to help explore markets for their products and increase their reach,” she said.
