The WGEC Tour focuses on empowering women to pursue and succeed in business and entrepreneurship. During Tour, women are invited from around the world to showcase their innovative, business and entrepreneurial ideas in the areas of technology, innovation, or green and renewable energy (TIGRE). The US regional and international winners will compete in Dubai, UAE in 2019 for the 1 MILLION DOLLAR GRAND PRIZE to launch their business.
With WGEC, everyone wins – not just the contestants. A woman can register to participate as a conference attendee, event sponsor, or choose to sponsor another woman who registers to compete in the competition.
The unique WGEC experience offers women a dynamic platform designed to develop their business plan and gain valuable exposure to advanced global networks during the WGEC Reality TV Series being taped during the conference tour stops.
The WGEC, Conference and World Tour will also provide leadership training, mentoring, consulting and funding for business concepts and ideas through informative, expert online and on-site conference seminars throughout the tour.
