What is PDL?
The PDL is a capacity building training created by enpact to support accelerators, incubators, associations, NGOs, and ecosystem enablers at large who want to develop innovative and sustainable entrepreneurship programmes.
Through the PDL, ecosystem players across the globe (so far from India, Iraq, Tunisia, and Uzbekistan) have successfully created new approaches on how to empower entrepreneurs. In 2019, 11 Indian organisations have developed four projects with the aim to promote, connect and empower female founders in India.
enpact is implementing the PDL in India for a consecutive second year as part of “The Female Entrepreneurship in Berlin and India” (FEBI) project. Applying a Design Thinking approach, the programme consists of three modules which cover all aspects of programme development – from project idea conception, fundraising, stakeholder management, marketing, as well as monitoring & evaluation.
The first module is structured as a Design Sprint and takes place in India in a five-day bootcamp setting at the beginning of 2021. During the second module, which takes place online, participants will be coached remotely on their newly developed projects and work on assignments individually as well as in their respective project teams. Module three will be taking place in Berlin with a three-day bootcamp and a participation at the AsiaBerlin Summit organised by the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises (Berlin Senate) in the summer of 2021.
All participating organisations will be encouraged to assess their current offers by analysing and adapting them to the needs of their target audience. And of course, during the course of the week, we’ll have time to share experience within the group as well as meet German founders and accelerators. We will attend selected events of the Asia-Pacific Week 2021, unique European platform for interdisciplinary dialogue with experts in the fields of politics, business, science, research and culture on globally relevant subjects: smart cities, industry 4.0, digitalization, and innovation.
