OUR VISION

We envision a global entrepreneurial ecosystem where women flourish at entrepreneurship, where she is only limited by her imagination and little else.

OUR Mision

Z
To bring together changemakers globally who will inspire transformation, be a WEFORSHE transformer and believe in building a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem, and help close the gender gap in funding and thereby shape a better world.
Z
Convene leaders from around the world to bridge divides and inspire new thinking and action,
Z
To help forge the next generation of changemakers our world requires.
THE WHY

There are 2 KEY transformations that need to happen:

Z
Women being underrepresented among the ranks of entrepreneurs, is not just a gender or a fairness issue —it is an issue of economic growth. WEFORSHE summit aims to facilitate and foster this much needed change globally and thereby disrupt in unleashing a wealth of ingenuity and creativity that can spark a new era of entrepreneur-led growth in the world.”
Z

The current system of startup funding puts women entrepreneurs at a clear disadvantage. 2017 has seen only 2% of VC funding go to female founders. Last year, the largest VC deal for a female team was $165 million — a stark contrast to that for males, which was $3 billion.
