Dell plans Women’s Entrepreneur chapter in India

Dell Technologies plans to launch the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) chapter in India next year.

“The DWEN chapter in India will mentor women entrepreneurs, conduct quarterly meetings and various events that will help and also encourage many women,” said Sheenam Ohrie, Vice President, Enterprise, Data and Mobility Engineering, Dell India.

Through the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN), Dell is connecting female entrepreneurs across the globe with networks, sources of capital, knowledge and technology, giving them the power to do more.

On Tuesday, DWEN and Springboard Enterprises together hosted an event as part of Women Funding Women global tour that promotes investments by and investments in women-led growth businesses. Over 100 women entrepreneurs and investors participated in the event. “Women’s entrepreneurship rates rose globally by 13% in 2017, reflecting the broader momentum of increased female representation across the public and private sectors in many regions around the world. Access to capital and technology, as well as cultural and political barriers, continue to limit the success of women-owned businesses,” said Ingrid Devin, Director, DWEN.

“Our mission is to empower women across the globe by removing barriers to entrepreneurship, accelerating positive change that allows them to thrive," she added.

“The platform provided by DWEN enables women entrepreneurs to learn from each other, to support each other and foster the growth of this community. Recognizing the unique challenges and leveraging this platform to convert them into opportunities, will certainly help accelerate their representation within India’s startup ecosystem” said Sheenam Ohrie, Vice President, Enterprise, Data and Mobile Engineering, Dell.
