Key Actors, Unite

“There’s really a lot of interest right now – in the corporate world, in the governmental policy world, among international agencies – about women’s economic empowerment. What I wanted to do was bring those people together who are working on policy questions about empowering women from different sectoral perspectives, and provide them with a safe place to share what they are learning and doing.”

Innovators to Consumers:

Three key organisations in the arena of technology, finance, & women’s empowerment – Astia, the Cherie Blair Foundation, and Enclude – will come together under the thought leadership of Jeanne Sullivan, named by Forbes as one of the five most powerful women changing the world in venture capital.

The three organisations offer a fully global perspective by focusing on high growth businesses, the “missing middle,” and poverty alleviation in both rich and poor nations.
