Women’s Policy Forum: Fighting the Startup Gender Gap

UP Global's recent whitepaper, Fostering a Startup and Innovation Ecosystem, introduces five key ingredients that are critical for building thriving startup communities and includes recommendations for policy makers. One core attribute is diversity and the importance of women in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
UP Global, Google for Entrepreneurs, and IFC's Women's Finance Hub invite you to a round table discussion on women in entrepreneurship.
The discussion will engage all layers of the ecosystem (from grassroots community leaders, to policy makers to entrepreneurs, to corporates executives) in conversation about the key challenges that entrepreneurship faces in reducing the gender gap. It will then seek to the collective experience of the crowd to begin making recommendations on how to overcome these challenges.
