Theme: “Unleash the Power within You!”
“Don’t Limit to skies when there is a whole galaxy out there!”Bianca Frazier
Entrepreneurship is an important driver of economic development and growth, and a facilitator of empowerment for women around the world. The OECD Recommendation on Gender Equality calls on governments to reduce the gender gap in entrepreneurship activity.
Despite evidence that women tend to have better repayment records than men, they face higher barriers in this regard. These disparities are the result of the complex interaction of factors, including the way private equity works, the way financial institutions operate, and the behavior of women themselves. Women tend not to be strongly entrenched within the relevant investor networks. Lacking exposure to the world of private equity, women tend to structure their projects differently from men, which may affect their ability to attract capital. Men and women also have different styles in “pitching” for funds. Women too often lack the knowledge and confidence to ask for large enough sums and to negotiate well on terms.
Over the past decade, women-owned enterprises have increased from 14% to 20%, as per government sources. In continuation to our commitment towards encouraging and nurturing more women to take the entrepreneurial route and to support them with the best able mentors from across the country, we are delighted to present you the 6th Edition of Women Power Summit & Awards 2021, (1st Edition of WPSA 2021 Awards this year) a unique one Day Conference and a Gala Awards Ceremony with an objective of bringing women thought leaders under one roof, to share their expertise and innovations, and create a collaborative environment as well as build a stronger community.
