US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump will get a glimpse of ‘Make in India’ at Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2017 at Hyderabad on Tuesday afternoon. Trump alongwith Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be welcomed by Mitra. Mitra is a robot manufactured by Bengaluru-based start-up company Invento Robotics. The robot had earlier functioned at a Canara Bank branch in Bengaluru. Without a doubt, Mitra is all set to be a star attraction at this gala event.
In her keynote address to the 8th annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit later in the day, Ivanka is likely to stress on ensuring women entrepreneurs have access to capital, access to networks and mentors, and access to equitable laws. According to reports, she would state that despite the soaring rate of female entrepreneurs, women still face steep obstacles to starting, owning, and growing their businesses.
“Fuelling the growth of women-led businesses isn’t simply good for our society – it’s good for our economy. One study estimates that closing the gender entrepreneurship gap world-wide could grow our global GDP by as much as 2 per cent,” she would state.
Ivanka, who is a successful businesswoman, fashion designer and advisor to the US President, was invited by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the White House in June to speak at the Summit. She is leading the US contingent at the Summit themed ‘Women First, Prosperity for All’.
She would open her speech by stressing how all over the world entrepreneurs are revolutionising our economies, and improving our societies.
“You are rewriting the rules,” she would state.
She will then talk about this year’s GES theme. “This year’s Summit is focused on a theme that is key to our future: Women First, Prosperity For All. I am proud that for the first time ever, women make up the majority of the 1,500 entrepreneurs selected to attend.”
Women, according to her, can help lead the way to closing this gap and ushering in a new age of greater prosperity. “We must ensure women entrepreneurs have access to capital, access to networks and mentors, and access to equitable laws.”
