GES is the preeminent annual entrepreneurship gathering that convenes emerging entrepreneurs, investors and supporters from around the world. GES 2017 will create an environment that empowers innovators, particularly women, to take their ideas to the next level. Through two and a half days of networking, mentoring, and workshops, GES empowers entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, innovate, and find their target customers — creating new goods and services that will transform societies.

“I’m absolutely looking forward to meeting like-minded entrepreneurs, to be able to share our stories and the problems we are facing,”  Hoehnel commented.  “What I’m trying to do is be an inspiration for others to follow their dream and start their own company.”
