About Us

What We Do

Established in 2000, Industree Foundation holistically tackles the root causes of poverty by creating an ownership based, organised creative manufacturing ecosystem for women.

Industree works with women entrepreneurs and artisans, particularly with marginalized and tribal communities in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, and Ethiopia as well. Industree works towards upskilling rural women artisans and helps them connect with national and global markets. Through our interventions, we have impacted over 500000 producers in the last 20 years and have created markets worth USD 58 Million.
