We had a great launch of the Women’s Entrepreneurial Venture Scope (WEVentureScope) in late July at the MIF. Nancy Lee, MIF General Manager, and Leo Abruzzese, the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Forecasting Director and Executive Editor for the Americas, talked about the key findings and construction of the Index, and an all-star panel moderated by Gayle Lemmon of the Council on Foreign Relations discussed the bright spots and challenges related to women’s entrepreneurship in the region, including access to finance, markets, and skill building opportunities.
