The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) London, part of TiE Global, the world’s largest non-profit network for entrepreneurs, recently announced the launch of TiE Women Entrepreneurs (TWE).
The organisation held a Gala dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel in London where the announcement was made. It comes two days ahead of the global Women’s Entrepreneurship Day – a day on which the work of women entrepreneurs is observed and discussed and is held on the 19th November each year. TWE will be the chapter’s female focused division; promoting and encouraging the core TiE values among its female members.
TiE London’s President Dinesh Dhamija, a British-Indian serial business entrepreneur, best known as the founder of the successful online travel agency Ebookers stated: “I am very pleased to announce the launch of TWE and announce that we have appointed as Co-chairs; Farzana Baduel, Founder and CEO of an award-winning, global strategic PR agency Curzon PR and Radhika Seth, Founder and CEO of International Interior Architecture and Design company Sequoia London, two inspiring women who are great examples of successful female entrepreneurs showcasing how hard work and dedication can lead to being masters of your craft. We had a fabulous turnout at the Gala dinner night and I know this is just the start of what is to come for the Women’s Chapter of TiE!”
Baduel said, “TWE gives women making strides in their business activities, a community that will champion their efforts, support their endeavours and inspire others to break the glass ceiling in the entrepreneurial field. Networking is one of the most powerful tools for broadening our knowledge and sparking exciting collaborations, particularly in an era where everything is developing at a faster pace. The more we collaborate and encourage each other, the greater chance we will have in changing the gender imbalance within the business community.”
Seth added, “Networking is crucial to the success of so many business leaders, and in knowing the value of this skill I’m eager to encourage more people, women in particular, to build circles that will nurture their professional development. As an extension of a global community with over 12,000 members consisting of 61 chapters in 18 countries, TWE is going to be a huge force in uniting women not only from across London but on an international scale. The range of events, support and mentoring programs which will be available to TWE members is an exciting trait of the association.”
Senior professionals, entrepreneurs and innovators are welcome to join TiE London, all female members will automatically be enrolled in TWE. Members can expect to attend several key events in addition to TiE London’s regular event schedule comprising industry leaders and key guest speakers who will share exclusive industry insights on topics relevant to every woman.
