Journey From WebM To WebN
Our journey started in Oct 2018, we named our little platform as “Women Entrepreneurs Business Meet” (WEBM ). There were only 15 women who used to ‘meet’ our 1st term’s tenure was only 6 months. June 2019 we started 2nd term, more women joined in and by end of another 6 months we were 24 members and we still called it WEBM. Then came 3rd term in May 2020 with 1 year tenure and we got a New Leadership Team Headed by Our Dynamic President & Power mentor. Under the leadership of Our President Mrs Sunitaa Mathur We achieved Exponential Growth in Terms of Business and number of Members. It was her new vision, experience and exposure, which changed the Game, the Name and the Energy. We got a new name ‘WEBN’- small ‘Meet’ converted into bigger ‘Network’… We got a new Identity, new Logo, we got registered Trademark, in short we got our act together. We reviewed and renewed our policies, energies and in no time we were ‘Talk of the Town’. Today we are here with you all, to spread our horizons to South Goa, after a successful presence with impact in North Goa.
