What People are saying about the summit
Innovate UK’s Women in Innovation programme is passionate about supporting brilliant women to fully achieve their visions and change the world, while championing and celebrating gender diversity. We are proud to be a partner for the first Commonwealth Women Entrepreneurs Summit and collaborate with other organisations also working towards this goal.
On the first joint International Women’s Day and Commonwealth Day for several years, the inaugural Commonwealth Women’s Entrepreneurship Summit is launched. Held while the UK is Commonwealth Chair and G7 President, it will be a 2 day online conference focusing on women’s entrepreneurship across emerging tech sectors.
Targeting policy makers, entrepreneurs, government agencies, entrepreneurship support organisations, funders, and educational institutions, it aims to frame and feed into key international meetings including CHOGM and the G7 which will be held within about 100 days of the Summit and the G20 and UNCTAD 15 later in 2021, Read more.
