DELL HOSTS DELL WOMEN’S ENTREPRENEUR NETWORK REGIONAL MEET-UP IN CHENNAI
Chennai, India – May 15, 2015 – Dell India today organized its Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) meet up, for the first time in Chennai with presence from 19 eminent women entrepreneurs who have established or have been instrumental in establishing entrepreneurial ventures in their respective fields. The event was designed such that the entrepreneurs were offered a platform to come together and collaborate to further contribute to the growth of what is already a nation-wide positive Indian women entrepreneurship ecosystem in the country. Dell has held several such networking meet-ups in cities like New Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai, increasing the network of women entrepreneurs who come together periodically to share the lessons, mantras and successes achieved through their journeys.
India is witnessing a phenomenal acceleration in the birth of dynamic and spirited start-ups, and the business environment at present is more conducive to their growth than ever. This makes it relevant to note and share the expertise required to run an entrepreneurial venture competently in any domain of business. Evolution, determined leadership and inspiration from surroundings, competition and from the business itself, are key factors that can enable an entrepreneur to hone and nurture a successful new venture.
Keeping this in mind, attendees at DWEN’s Chennai chapter came together to hold a focused group discussion around the theme, “Change, Inspire & Lead” to share with one another their experiences of being an entrepreneur, and how each of these words holds a unique relevance in their varied fields of business. The discussion focused on experience-sharing and storytelling; to discover the experiences and measures that have resulted in success by embracing change, finding inspiration and taking the lead to spearhead the growth of a one’s business.
By spotlighting female entrepreneurial success and creating a supportive atmosphere, DWEN aims to help a group of like-minded women share best practices, build business opportunities through collaboration, explore expansion and access new resources that support business growth.
Commenting on the occasion, Ritu Gupta, Director, Marketing Director- Consumer and Small Businesses, Dell India said “Entrepreneurship and ambition are the key motivating forces at Dell. We endorse the concept of being active listeners whilst engaging with customers, and of establishing enduring relationships with customers. Through DWEN, we aim to offer a ready platform for women entrepreneurs to come together to share ideas and best practices among themselves, so they can leave with a fresh perspective from each other’s’ dynamic fields of operation. We see an immense scope for growth of the Indian women entrepreneurship ecosystem in India and it is a pleasure to host our first event in Chennai, which ranks high in the start-up race and has witnessed a streak of successful startups in a variety of domains.”
