GES 2017 will empower Indian entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, and create innovative products and services that will transform societies for a better future. It will not only bring global best practices to India, but will create an irreplaceable place for India in the global entrepreneurial ecosystem. The theme for this year’s Summit – Women First, Prosperity for All – will celebrate entrepreneurship in all its strength, diversity and entirety.
