7th May 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Austin, Texas, USA – May 7, 2014:  Dell today announced the preliminary speaker line-up for its fifth annual Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network event, scheduled to be held between June 1-3 in Dell’s hometown, Austin, Texas.

The Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network global event, co-sponsored by Intel, is an exclusive, invitation-only conference that will connect more than 200 of the world’s top female entrepreneurs, business leaders and media to share insights and best practices as part of a vibrant entrepreneurial community.

Previously hosted in emerging entrepreneurial hotbeds Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, New Delhi, and Istanbul, Dell is bringing this year’s event to Austin where Dell began in a University of Texas dorm room 30 years ago.

Programming will be centered around the impact that women-owned businesses are having on the global economy and unite around this year’s theme “Bold Beginnings, Brave Futures,” showcasing the stories and technologies inspiring global entrepreneurs today. The United States is the world’s largest economy and was named the best place to be a female entrepreneur out of 17 countries surveyed in the Dell-commissioned Gender-GEDI 2013 rankings for its good institutional foundations and strong entrepreneurial environment.

Austin recently was named the fastest growing U.S. city by Forbes, making it a prime location to host this year’s event, providing attending women entrepreneurs with access to networks, technology, capital and the knowledge needed to grow their businesses.

“Dell began 30 years ago with a belief that putting technology in the hands of people everywhere could change the world, said Karen Quintos, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Dell. “The fifth annual Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network in Dell’s hometown will bring together top women entrepreneurs from around the world to celebrate that same entrepreneurial spirit, the potential of female entrepreneurship to affect the global economy and the bright future ahead.”

Speakers at this year’s event will include leading female CEOs, founders and thought leaders: Dr. Brené Brown, Researcher at The University of Houston and Bestselling Author, Daring Greatly, How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead and Anasuya Gupta, Chairperson & Managing Director, CICO Technologies Limited and Karen Quintos, Chief Marketing Officer, Dell Inc will feature among the speakers.

The DWEN agenda will focus on how women can grow and scale their businesses with technology, and will include keynotes, panel discussions, workshops designed to address top business issues, facilitate introductions to the right business connections, and share lessons learned.
