New Delhi, September 3, 2019: TiE Delhi-NCR is set to host Women Entrepreneurship: New Horizons 2019 on September 6, 2019 at the WelcomHotel Sheraton in Saket, New Delhi, among the most active and vibrant chapters of the vast global TiE network. The meeting will bring together leading female entrepreneurs, sector leaders, aspiring innovators and other important Indian start-up ecosystem stakeholders to hold insightful, knowledge-sharing sessions under one roof. Through this case, TiE Delhi-NCR aims to provide an interactive platform to guide, empower and accelerate the next generation of female entrepreneurs for women leaders across the country’s varied genres.
Over the years, countless success stories have appeared where females have been able to overcome various socio-cultural obstacles–such as gender discrimination, gender disparity and unequal representation–to make space for themselves across mainly male-dominated areas, disciplines, professions, etc. Entrepreneurship in India is one of those areas where there is a sharp contrast between the gender gap. Despite boasting the world’s third largest start-up ecosystem, the country’s female business owners make up just 14 percent of the total number. Successful women rulers have the authority to inspire, promote and empower more high-caliber females with a vision to follow suit against such a background.
TiE Delhi-NCR’s mission – together with its ancillary Special Interest Group for Women Entrepreneurs (SIGWE) – is in line with this concept and New Horizons ‘ latest edition will be its most dynamic manifestation to date.
Geetika Dayal, Executive Director–TiE Delhi-NCR, said, “Several reports continue to emerge that assert how enhanced women’s involvement can help unlock possibilities for achievement across organisations and countries. A 2018 IMF research, for example, claims that allowing the growth of women’s skills will not only generate job possibilities but also lead the country’s GDP to rise by 6.8%. Hence, as enablers of the Indian start-up ecosystem, our task is to unlock these predicted growth prospects by empowering women entrepreneurs by providing them with financing, mentoring and networking possibilities.
The Day promises to be a treat for all female entrepreneurs with an exciting & inspirational set of Marketing, Fund Raising & more. In addition, the’ WomENABLER Award, which includes Dr Anita Gupta, Scientist-G / Adviser & Associate Head-NSTEDB, Indra Sood, Leadership & HR Professional, Sopaan; Anuradha Das Mathur, Founder & Dean, Vedica Scholars Program for Women and, 9.9 Group; Sairee Chahal, Founder & CEO, Sheroes, will also be congratulated to leading women entrepreneurs.
