Meet Sara Murray, a Most Promising Woman Entrepreneur 2014

British entrepreneur Sara Murray, 45, has been named one of Fortune magazine’s ‘Ten Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs 2014’ for her creation of buddi, the tagging system originally designed to locate lost children.

Now used by more than 100 local authorities in the UK to help monitor the vulnerable, it has also been taken up by police forces on three continents to keep track of offenders.  Murray set up the firm in 2005 after temporarily losing her child in a supermarket.

Congratulations Sara!  We are very proud of you.

Enabling Women Entrepreneurs to Make Better Use of Technology to Grow Their Businesses Globally

Screen Shot 2014-10-04 at 4.02.30 PM

Recently, the U.S. Department of State announced a new partnership between Ernst & Young (EY) and the Bureau of Information Resource Management’s Office of eDiplomacy at the Department of State outlining a public-private partnership that will directly benefit women entrepreneurs in four Latin American countries as part of the Women’s Entrepreneurship in the Americas Initiative (WEAmericas).

WEAmericas was launched  in 2012 by President Obama at the Summit of the Americas. WEAmericas leverages public-private partnerships to encourage inclusive economic growth in the Western Hemisphere. The initiative reduces barriers and increases opportunities for women entrepreneurs to start and grow small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) by improving: access to markets; access to capital; skills and capacity building; and leadership opportunities.

Under the partnership, EY will contribute to the long-term impact of four interactive technology workshops called “TechCamps” which the Department will conduct over the next six months.  These workshops will enable women entrepreneurs in those countries to make better use of technology to grow their businesses [globally].
