Three-day GES (Global Entrepreneur Summit) started on 28th November 2017 with the aim to collaborate supporters of the ecosystem, start-up companies, and investors for better networking, guidance, and investment activities. The event was jointly inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi and Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, in Hyderabad.
Important Takeaway From Speeches Given By PM Modi and Ivanka at the GES summit
“Thank you for all that you are doing to build India as a thriving economy – a beacon of democracy – and a symbol of hope to the world. What you are achieving is truly extraordinary. From your childhood selling of tea to your election as India’s Prime Minister, you’ve proved that transformational change is possible. And now you are bringing that promise to hundreds of millions of people across your country.” Ivanka Trump to Narendra Modi
Ivanka proudly stated the fact that majority of entrepreneurs (attendees of the summit) are women. She further added that she had previously noticed that in a male-dominated industry women have to work more than their male counterparts at the workspace.
According to Ivanka, encouraging to women to run business will not only benefit society but also our economy at large. Research has proved that growth of the women-led business will result in global GDP growth.
