Why us?

Virangana Earth

Virangana Project Earth is an initiative run by two of Australia’s leading mentor organisations – Energy Lab (Australia’s leading platform for launching energy-related start-ups) and CEO Strategic (the corporate advisory firm behind The Virangana Project, which assists Indian women entrepreneurs in raising investment capital).



Our Mission

The Virangana Project Earth program aims to identify India’s most innovative entrepreneurs operating in the renewable energy, clean water and infrastructure sectors, offer them mentoring and business coaching, and then fly them to Sydney Australia, where they will have the opportunity to ‘pitch’ for capital investment and partnerships with some of Australia’s leading angel investors, VCs and relevant government bodies.



Who can apply?

Applications will be open to any Indian-registered business operating in the relevant sectors. Our 2019 program will be open to both men and women. Application Page and terms and conditions will be made available on this website commencing early January 2019.
