Hyderabad gears up to host Global Entrepreneurship Summit

TOPSHOT- Indian beggers who were brought to a shelter after begging on the streets sit inside a dormitory in Hyderabad

The Summit in Hyderabad, to be attended by 1,500 entrepreneurs from 170 countries, will be co-hosted by India and the US. This entrepreneurship summit will especially focus on developing women entrepreneurs across the globe. She was invited for the summit earlier this year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his state visit to the US.

It appears that the continued frosty relationship between U.S. president Donald Trump and his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, could take much of the sheen off Ivanka Trump's first high-profile event outside of America - the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) to be hosted by India in Hyderabad between November 28 and 30.

Following the inauguration, scheduled for 4.30 pm, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and Ivanka will address the gathering. Four hundred delegates each from India and the USA along with other delegates from across the globe will participate in this summit. Three networking sessions are also planned to enhance opportunities to interact with other participants. This GES will focus on developing startups belonging to these four sectors across the globe namely: healthcare and life sciences, digital economy and financial technology, energy and infrastructure and media and entertainment.

In a first for the event, women will represent 52 percent of the attendees.

Ivanka Trump, who is leading the U.S. delegation, will also make remarks at the opening session themed "Be the change: women's entrepreneurial leadership". He added that the discussion would be moderated by John Chambers, the chairman Emeritus of CISCO. A number of leading female voices will speak at various plenaries, breakout sessions, master classes, and workshops, including Google's Vice President of Next Billion Users Diana Louise Patricia Layfield, tennis champion Sania Mirza, and CEO of Afghan Citadel Software Company Roya Mahboob. Eminent panelists such as Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Chanda Kochhar, MD and CEO ICICI Bank, Karen Quintos, CCO, Dell and Cherie Blair, of Cherie Blair Foundation for Women will also take part in these discussions along with Ivanka.

The closing session of GES will bring together key influencers that support, promote and fund women entrepreneurs.

This year's summit's theme demonstrates the commitment of the USA and Indian governments towards women empowerment.
