The Distinguished WEDO Fellows Accelerator is a global program which promotes women entrepreneurs and innovators who are pioneers in their fields of excellence. Women in this extraordinary network represent diverse cultures, experience, and expertise while achieving great strides in the world as entrepreneurs and business leaders.

From the innovative Silicon Valley in the United States to Bengaluru, India, one thing we’ve never taken a serious look at is the nature of women as game-changers and agents of change in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Since we can remember during the Industrial Revolution, women have been the silent shadow leaders, strengthening corporations at the expense of individual empowerment, yet have not created the one thing that could be an exponential game changer – gender equality in the Entrepreneurial Sphere.

The WEDO Fellows is a bold experiment to rethink and redesign the nature of this paradigm and re-invent entrepreneurship from the ground up. We must have women lead the way. Our Fellows are a small group of game-changers and trailblazers that think and act bravely.
