Citi GPS: Women Entrepreneurs – Catalyzing Growth, Innovation, and Equality

Around the world, women entrepreneurs face barriers to starting and growing their business including lack of access to finance, markets and networks as well as legal, cultural and social constraints.

According to our latest report, Citi GPS Report: Women Entrepreneurs – Catalyzing Growth, Innovation and Equality, closing the gender gap in business growth globally could add up to $2.3 trillion to global GDP (or a 3% increase), and create up to 433 million jobs. Supporting women entrepreneurs and women-led businesses is not just the right thing to do socially, it is one of the smartest things that governments, corporations and the finance community could do economically.

In order to unlock the potential of Women Entrepreneurs, closing the knowledge gap between women entrepreneurs and finance providers is key. Our panel of experts will discuss the efforts required from the financial community to better support women entrepreneurs.
