Women tech-entrepreneurs are facing challenges in setting-up/running a business.

According to OECD, women-run start-ups receive 23 per cent less loans from financial institutions than male-run businesses. The session will discuss about the main challenges faced by business women in tech and innovation sector, the policy measures needed to increase women’s participation and successful business models that can be transferred north-south-north including the lessons learned from successes and failures.
