Ivanka Trump Starts Fund for Women Entrepreneurs

Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to President Trump, is building a fund for female entrepreneurs, Axios reported Wednesday. “The statistics and results prove that when you invest in women and girls, it benefits both developed and developing economies,” Trump told reporter Mike Allen in Berlin. “Women are an enormous untapped resource, critical to the growth of all countries.” Trump says the fund will provide capital to both small and medium-sizes enterprises run by women around the globe and that the financing will come from various countries and corporations. According to Axios, Trump’s father is supportive of the idea. World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim has allegedly consulted with the first daughter about the project.
