THIS YEAR’S THEME: WOMEN FIRST, PROSPERITY FOR ALL

The global growth story is at a threshold transformation; one that can not only transform the world but also impact individuals across barriers such as nationality, class, gender. It is Entrepreneurship and Innovation that holds the promise of a better tomorrow. To ride the wave of this spirit of growth and entrepreneurship, it is vital that we as a global community, encourage and encompass the efforts of all innovators, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and investors, to broaden the entrepreneurial ecosystem to embrace everyone.

Under the overarching theme of ‘Women First, Prosperity for All’, this year the summit will primarily focus on Energy & Infrastructure, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Financial Technology & Digital Economy, and Media & Entertainment sectors.

Investing in women entrepreneurs not only fuels economic growth, but also drives innovation to address the critical challenges communities are facing worldwide. Women leaders in entrepreneurship, innovation and investment also hold the key to fostering prosperous and dynamic societies.

GES 2017 is proud to put Women First in this celebration of potential and possibilities that entrepreneurship and innovation brings to the world. We at GES 2017 firmly believe that the dynamism and opportunities that the summit offers will gain and benefit all entrepreneurs.
