Women In Travel Entrepreneurship Panel and Networking

24 Apr 2017, 16:30 - 18:00

Showcase Theatre


Entrepreneurs share their success stories.
According to research female entrepreneurs continue to fear failure and that is why a third of global female population refrain from setting up a business.  Finance and capital are a big factor in all of this, with women starting businesses that are under-capitalised and around 1/3 of the level of capital enjoyed by their male equivalent.
What does the female entrepreneurship landscape looks like in Dubai and in the region? How did our panelists come to set up their own enterprises? Was it easy to launch a business?
If you are interested in entrepreneurship, thinking about launching a business or have a business already but want to understand how to go about financing, join this panel to gain inspiration, tips and practical answers to your entrepreneurship questions.

The event will conclude with some great networking. Refreshments will be available and we will continue developing the conversations, finding the inspiration and building this amazing international community of women over a drink
