The Many Ways to Invest in Women Entrepreneurs

Women entrepreneurs are key actors in the global development sector, having an impact – often at scale – through sustainable business models. Creating deep impact in their communities takes allies. Women leaders need the grit and resilience to overcome big challenges, to knock down systemic barriers and grow new paths to success. They also need the support of many allies working with them on and in their business. Along with that comes the requirement for capital, investments to support growth, and enabling business environments. The panel brings a broad range of experience from being women entrepreneurs to supporting women leaders in all aspects of their business. Join us to learn how to be an ally, and how to cultivate allies!
