Women: An Untapped Global Economic Potential

Screen Shot 2015-05-30 at 8.04.33 PM

According to the International Labor Organization, there are 812 million women living in developing countries with the potential to contribute more fully to their economies. Furthermore, in emerging markets, supporting women to be entrepreneurial, not to mention globally entrepreneurial, helps reduce poverty for women, their families and their communities.

And yet, according to Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), the Gender GEDI (Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index) found that in nearly three quarters of the 30 countries surveyed, conditions for female entrepreneurship and business growth were unfavorable.  That’s where WEGG will be stepping in to make a difference.

Along with GEW, we will drive a worldwide movement to engage, support and train female entrepreneurs to take their businesses global.  Watch for more news on this coming soon.

Meanwhile, pay a visit to GEW to see how you might get involved in their women’s entrepreneurial push November 16-22, 2015.
