eMERG, the Engineering Manufacturer Entrepreneurs Resource Group, is the brainchild of a group of enterprising business women. eMERG was founded in an era when women engineers in India were still foraying in small numbers - into entrepreneurship. With hardly any eco system and support available, an exclusive professional networking space for women in engineering manufacturing was unheard of. Yet, the need to associate with others in the space, share the challenges, experiences and hard earned wisdom – led 7 enterprising women engineers to found eMERG in 2006, in Bangalore, India.
Over the years, e MERG has grown exponentially, and now is an association for women in technology, business, profession & services. As a Not for Profit organization, e MERG works to provide women a platform to showcase and develop their business and talents. eMERG regularly conducts training programs for the members, which provides them opportunities to learn about the current policies, funding facilities as well as training potentials available from the government and the non-government sectors. e MERG organizes trade delegations nationally as well as internationally which provides excellent exposure opportunities.
