Backing Women-Led Businesses: In Conversation with Sie Ventures

In this curated series of conversations, we highlight some of the women building successful businesses across sectors and in different regions to learn from their experiences. Our experts will explore the challenges women entrepreneurs still face, what is needed to better support them, and the significant economic opportunity that empowered women entrepreneurs present. 

Citi GPS Series: Women Entrepreneurs 

Supporting women entrepreneurs and women-led businesses is not just the right thing to do socially, it is one of the smartest things that governments, corporations and the finance community could do economically. Yet, around the world, women entrepreneurs still face barriers to starting and growing their businesses. 


In 2022, we published a report, Citi GPS Report: Women Entrepreneurs – Catalyzing Growth, Innovation and Equality, which found that closing the gender gap in business growth globally could add up to $2.3 trillion to global GDP (or a 3% increase), create up to 433 million jobs, and unleash an untapped pool of talent and innovation to address global challenges. 


Please join us in conversation with Triin Linamagi, Founding Partner of Sie Ventures, to discuss: 

  • The barriers that women face in starting and growing their businesses
  • Women entrepreneurs’ experience of raising capital in an economic downturn
  • The innovative businesses that women entrepreneurs are building
  • How the economic potential of women-led businesses can be unlocked
  • How the financial sector can capitalise on the opportunity to support innovative women-led businesses.
