India and US will be co-hosting the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) at Hyderabad from 28-30 November, 2017.

The Summit is a unique opportunity for bringing together entrepreneurs and start ups with global leaders.

The theme of the Summit will be “Women First, Prosperity for All”, highlighting the critical role women play in fostering global growth and prosperity.

Ivanka Trump, Advisor to the President, will lead the U.S. delegation.

The GES is the preeminent annual gathering of emerging entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from around the world. Through networking, mentoring, and workshops, the GES empowers entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, and create innovative goods and services that will transform societies.

This year, the focus will be on women entrepreneurs and the tremendous potential women bring to entrepreneurship.

The U.S.-India relationship is growing every year with more trade, more travel, and greater people-to-people ties. The Global Entrepreneurship Summit is the latest example of how India and USA are working together to advance the promise of an increasingly digital world and the remarkable entrepreneurial skills of people to promote prosperity.

These are goals President Trump and Prime Minister Modi set for two nations after their meeting in June in Washington.
