The Role of Venture Capital in Building Inclusive Growth in Emerging Market

A discussion on the role and responsibility of venture capital in building inclusive economies.

About this Event

Venture capital has an important role to play in creating inclusive growth in emerging markets especially in ensuring gender equity. In order to do this, there will need to be structural changes within the industry. We’re asking a panel of investors to share what they see as the biggest obstacles and opportunities in working towards inclusive growth and closing the gender funding gap. What shifts are taking place? What issues persist? And what are the pathways to achieving inclusive growth through venture funding?

Join us as we explore these questions and more with our panel of investors.
