New Delhi, Oct 20: The Womennovator Global Summit 2021 and 1000 Women of Asia Award commenced virtually from the 18th -24th October 2021. The week-long summit aims to recognize and celebrate the contribution of women entrepreneurs, leaders, businesswomen and influencers..

Womennovator Global Summit 2021

The summit is organised with the support from the Government of India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Department of Science and Technology, Development Commissioner under the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Consulate General of India, Invest India, and AGNI.

This year Womennovator (an Initiative of Gvriksh ) embarks on its 7th-year celebration by highlighting the significance of the number seven in our lives.

Seven in Indian culture and its scriptures have a great significance. The seven sacred rivers, seven notes in Indian music, the seven colors of the rainbow defining a Spectrum, and a mix of these give us the color of light, White.

In Sanskrit, the word Matrika means "Divine Mother," seven goddesses are depicted as divine power. As per Hindu scriptures and ancient yoga, the human body also has seven primary chakras that run along our spine. These chakras refer to energy points in our body and are perceived as the spinning disks of energy that should stay "open" and aligned.

With a thought process and effort to generate the same energy and power of 7, Womennovator Summit 2021 has been organised for seven days, showcasing the seven different professions women excel in. Over seven days, this event will witness an audience of over 1000 plus from across the world each day. We are also launching the Womennovator USA initiative with the Consulate General of India, New York on 20th October 2021.

It is time for India's Incubation ecosystem to recognize the value that Women Entrepreneurs bring to the table. At Womennovator, they are committed to making women and girls contribute as equal partners to the growth and development of our nation under the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG)-5.

Today, India has 58.5 million entrepreneurs, and ONLY 8.05 million are women entrepreneurs, which accounts for only 14 percent of women entrepreneurs in India. According to a recent study, businesses owned by women entrepreneurs in India are likely to grow up to 90 percent in the next five years.
