Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (“WED”) is a global initiative with the mission to celebrate, support and empower women in business worldwide, which was initiated in 2014 by the WED Organization - headquartered in the U.S. in New York City (the “WED HQ”) and its founder Wendy Diamond.
WED was launched on November 19th, 2014 and the date was officially proclaimed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill De Blasio, as “Women’s Entrepreneurship Day”. References to Women’s Entrepreneurship Day are references to this specific date, i.e. November 19th, dedicated to our cause. WED is the world’s largest celebration of women innovators and job creators launching startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.

“I have dedicated my whole life to helping the ‘underdog’ thrive. Historically, women worldwide have been underpaid, undervalued, underrepresented, underfunded --- and underestimated. We are dedicated, determined and driven to change this - the women entrepreneurs involved in WED are inspirational role models to women everywhere!” says Diamond
