Indian government to support women entrepreneurs – BHIVE | This year’s international women’s day has seen many improvements for women entrepreneurship in India. For example, the government launched its Mahila e-haat initiative on women’s day, part of the ‘Make in India’ series of reforms. Mahila e-haat aims at enabling women to exercise control over their finances by leveraging technology. It is centred around a website that provides a platform, especially for small enterprises led by women. Here products and services are showcased that are made, manufactured and/or sold by women entrepreneurs.

Not only on this occasion is it important to remember women’s contribution to society and the economy. Women represent half of the population of this planet. If we want to make the world a better place we must not forget about half the people. We have to support women and help them overcome the huge discrimination happening against women as compared to men. The Mahila e-haat initiative is a great starting point. I am looking forward to much more movement in that direction.

Let’s hope and look forward to how the Indian Government extends its support to women entrepreneurs.
