Welcome to Hyderabad, entrepreneurship capital of India. Welcome to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017.
The United States of America and India are proud to conduct the eighth annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Hyderabad, a great place for entrepreneurship facilities, from tomorrow, 28th to 30th November, 2017. This year’s Summit will highlight the theme ‘Women First, Prosperity for All’, and will focus on supporting women entrepreneurs and fostering economic growth globally. Adviser to the President of USA, Ivanka Trump will headline the United States delegation to the Summit and our Prime Minister Sri. Narendra Modi would also be attending and addressing the gathering. And I am happy and proud as a niece of mine is invited to this summit.
GES is the pre-eminent annual entrepreneurship gathering that convenes emerging entrepreneurs, investors and supporters from around the world. GES 2017 will create an environment that empowers innovators, particularly women, to take their ideas to the next level. Through two and a half days of networking, mentoring, and workshops, GES empowers entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, innovate, and find their target customers - creating new goods and services that will transform societies.
Hyderabad is a global second home to giants like Google, Amazon, Apple and Uber amongst many others. Hyderabad in the recent years has been the bustling breeding ground for most innovation and entrepreneurship activity in the country. The city has created a holistic environment with dedicated entrepreneurship facilities and has also set up a robust infrastructure, both physical and technological.
The city’s Tech Parks Multiplexes and numerous Corporate Head Quarters also contribute immensely to making Hyderabad one of the biggest and most efficient IT- hubs not only in India but also the world. The IT city, alongside the global corporate clusters in west Hyderabad, has gone on to earn a name for itself – Cyberabad. A microcosm of city’s entrepreneurial endeavors, Cyberabad has been a key driver in boosting the startup ecosystem in around the city.
As the host city to Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017, Hyderabad hopes to only bring the global best practices home to India but also to become an integral part of the global entrepreneurial ecosystem and bring together the innovation and energy of entrepreneurs across the board for an enterprising tomorrow.
