The “Road to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) Series in Odisha, India,” brings together industry leaders, start-ups, serial entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors as well as enablers of the innovation ecosystem such as government, international agencies and industry associations not only from India but across the globe. One of the top areas of focus is on women entrepreneurship and gender equality.
The leading woman entrepreneur of the state, Odisha Television Network Director Jagi Mangat Panda, says:
“The most important part of women empowerment is to create an entrepreneurial culture which can only happen if issues concerning women are addressed at the grassroots level. There are gender biases and stereotypes that are so deeply entrenched in our society that a simple passage of a law will not be able to take care of it, rather some extraordinary efforts have to be taken.”
