When Women Succeed, The Whole World is Uplifted

The Dollar Business spoke with Katherine B. Hadda, the US Consul General in Hyderabad on a wide range of topics – from the GES 2017 to strengthening Indo-US ties.  Two key questions addressed:

  1. The Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 (GES 2017), is expected to be a game changer for Indian businesses. What significance does it hold for you and what are your expectations?
  2. In GES 2017, we understand about 50% of the delegates are expected to be women entrepreneurs, out of a total of about 400 entrepreneurs from India and the US. What according to you does the participant composition signify about Indo-US women-led entrepreneurial ties?

GES: Keen to Support Women Entrepreneurs In Every Possible Way

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.”

Read more about the road to Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017, which celebrates women entrepreneurship.

Empowering Women Entrepreneurs Changes the Outcomes for Future Generations

At the MEDays Forum panel “Bolstering Growth Through Gender Equality,” nine women were featured from different parts of the world and from different industrial sectors. The session was moderated by Aghadeer Jweihan, the director of the office of Jordan’s Princess Taghrid Mohammad and an entrepreneur.  The Forum took place in Tangier (Morocco), considered the ‘Davos of Africa.’

Ingrid Bouterse-Waldring, the first lady of Suriname and the panel’s chair, stressed that encouraging female entrepreneurs has benefits that are not merely financial: Empowered women change the outcomes for future generations. For single mothers, self-employment allows them the greater flexibility needed in their schedules to care for children.

Several points that came out of the Forum:

1.  Women need to be bolder.
2.  Women should be running big [global] companies.
3.  Women need to think bigger.
4.  Women need to support other women (similar to what WEGG offers).

Read more about how the MEDays Forum looks to spur economic growth by empowering women.

Yes to India on Supporting Women-Owned Businesses

India-based Yes Bank (private sector) has received $150 million funding from the US government and Wells Fargo to increase lending to support women entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises in India.

This is the third round of funding to the bank as part of arrangement with the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) – the US government development finance institution – and Wells Fargo.

An estimated three million women-owned businesses in India employ over eight million people. However, only about a quarter of them are able to get the finance they need to grow and create jobs.

Hopefully, this will drive future economic growth and job creation in India for women entrepreneurs.
