The 2 days of extravaganza was full of energy, vibrancy, colour, glamour, dialogue, discussions, and merriment.

Karnataka is home to over 1,03,169 Women Business Enterprises and the Government has also funded many start-ups, headed by women. It is also the first state to announce an industrial park solely for women
The two day event was part of a series of activities being organised by the State of Karnataka to commemorate International Women’s Day, which falls on 8th March. The Summit enabled about 600+ dynamic participants including Women Entrepreneurs, Multinational Corporate Buyers, Government Officials, Multilateral and Bilateral Organisations, Investors – Banks, Venture Capitalists and Industry Thought Leaders engaging in inspiring and interactive sessions.
