Startup events tailored to women entrepreneurs serve as a powerful platform for networking, overcoming societal barriers, and addressing the wage gap. With a low percentage of female CEOs globally, such events become increasingly important for women seeking guidance and mentorship to bring their ideas to fruition.
Santosh Panda, Co-founder & CEO of Explara, an online ticket and event discovery platform, acknowledges the current lack of gender-specific events in the startup space. He expresses hope that organizations like PS Show will take the initiative to create such opportunities.
By participating in startup events for women, female entrepreneurs can confidently pitch ideas, connect with experienced mentors, and challenge preconceived notions about their capabilities. These gatherings are crucial for empowering women and fostering a more diverse entrepreneurial landscape.
