Google has rolled out a new project designed to help women entrepreneurs expand their business online. Google’s pilot program helps entrepreneurs take advantage of online opportunities the web has to offer business women. Acknowledging women often avoid technology, the Women Entrepreneurs on the Web pilot program rolls out in India and walks women through tasks at the entrepreneur’s own pace.
According to the Khaleej Times, Yolanda Mangolini – Google’s head of global diversity and inclusion initiative – has the big job of rolling the program out across markets.
And Khaleej Times reports, the project is free and all women have to do to sign up is buy a domain name. And if that expense is too great Google will still help women find customers on social networks or an online video channel so they too can benefit from the project. The program takes 4-6 weeks to complete.
