SHE is in search of Business Wizards located in India

Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE), recognized by Harvard Business School, Echoing Green, and Bill Clinton as an innovative social enterprise, aims to drive social and economic change through sustainable business development in emerging markets.  SHE’s first initiative, SHE28, is addressing girls' and women's lack of access to affordable menstrual pads often leading to missed school and/or work. SHE is stemming these significant costs by developing a franchise model, coupled with health education and advocacy, to manufacture and distribute affordable, eco-friendly menstrual pads for girls and women by sourcing local, inexpensive raw materials (e.g., banana fibers).
SHE currently operates in Africa, but is in an exciting position and is looking for an individual or a team of all-star graduate students to conduct a market entry assessment into India. Our vision is to find a partner organization who will co-operate a SHE India franchise.

We are in search of business school students to conduct on-the-ground research for us starting January 2013-end of February 2013. Final analysis and recommendations will be presented to SHE’s leadership team by the end of February 2013. 

The Junior Business Wizard role is an unpaid, volunteer-based position, requiring at least 10-12 hours/week, however, SHE will cover travel and project-related costs incurred while conducting primary research in India.

Lastly, the Junior Business Wizard will be working directly with the SHE senior management team including the CEO. The team will also directly present their final research to the senior management. The skills and networking gained by our past business fellows have well-prepared them for the next stage in their professional career.

Don’t miss out on an exciting opportunity to increase SHE’s impact and develop an insider’s experience into the social enterprise industry

Desired skills/experience:
We are seeking to build a team of 3-4 MBA or Master’s level students or professionals with a background in operations management, supply chain operations, marketing, international development, and management consulting.

To apply, please submit your resume and a cover letter explaining why you are interested in the mission, values, and activities of SHE to by December 28, 2012. In the e-mail subject line please write “Junior Business Wizard India.”
