The Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII), in collaboration with IDBI Bank, has initiated the “Revitalizing Innovation for Sustainable Enterprises (RISE)” project, focusing on bolstering entrepreneurship within the handloom sector. With a vision to empower weavers in the Kamrup Rural district, specifically in the villages of Pairanga, Milonpur, Bondapara, and Kukurmara, the project aims to infuse innovation and sustainability into traditional handloom practices.

The RISE project targets enhancing the capabilities of local weavers by introducing advanced Jacquard machinery. These technological advancements are envisioned to drive efficiency, growth, and sustainability within their businesses. By enabling the weavers to diversify their product range and stay attuned to market demands, the project seeks to catalyze economic development within the communities.

The implementation strategy of RISE involves Technology Based Entrepreneurship Training (TEDP) sessions conducted in Bondapara and Milonpur villages, with successful completion already achieved by beneficiaries. The training equips participants with the necessary skills to operate technologically advanced Jacquard Looms, laying the foundation for enterprise formation. Ongoing TEDP sessions in Pairanga village further underscore the commitment to fostering entrepreneurship in the handloom sector.
