Horizon CDT PhD student discusses gender and race issues in entrepreneurship at TEDxUoN 2024

We’re thrilled to announce that Ramneek Kaur Rai, a first-year PhD student at Horizon CDT, was invited to give a TEDx talk centred on the theme ‘Rock the Boat,’ focusing on her PhD research.

In her talk at the TedxUoN 2024 Conference, which took place on March 20, 2024 at the University Park Campus, Ramneek explored the intersection of gender and race within the realm of entrepreneurship and investment.

Ramneek also highlighted the underinvestment in female entrepreneurs and discussed how technology could help bridge this gap and challenge stereotypes.

Well done Ramneek!!
