In response to the disparities faced by women in starting and growing their businesses, Dell founded DWEN in 2010. The program is focused on creating and fostering a community of like-minded women founders who are looking for ways to grow - primarily by expanding into fast-growth, emerging countries - and who need a venue to exchange ideas, learn and do business with one another to make it happen. The network engages year-round through regional events hosted by Dell and its partners and through the online community.
