It was a great interactive learning experience for all the participants at this MSME Connect event organized by CIMSME and WIEF, held at Incuspaze, Emkay towers, Gurguram office. The panel explained on the various Stand-up India and MUDRA Loan schemes for startups and MSMEs offered especially to women in addition to the schemes which are offered for both men and women.

Key takeaways from the panel discussion:

  • The emergence of women entrepreneurs and their contribution to national economy is quite visible in India. It’s all about giving women a fair chance as quite often women are judged as “women first and then as entrepreneurs”.
  • Great initiatives have been taken by the government to fund Women Entrepreneurs under various schemes. It is also encouraging to see various private funds allocating equity funding to Women-Owned Start-ups.
  • Building such a support structure for women entrepreneurs by the government of India can bring equality in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and give a boost to the Indian economy.
  • Schemes supporting women entrepreneurs include Stand Up India, Annapurna Scheme, Stree Shakti Package For Women Entrepreneurs, Bharatiya Mahila Bank Business Loan, Dena Shakti Scheme, Udyogini Scheme, Cent Kalyani Scheme, MahilaUdyamNidhi Scheme, Mudra Yojana Scheme For Women, and Orient MahilaVikasYojana Scheme.
  • To avail any government schemes for women entrepreneur, kindly get UdyogAadhar.
  • Convert your dream into valuable business using MUDRA, Stand-up and Start-up schemes through the channel of SIDBI digital initiative, udyamimitra.

Women are usually not aware of business, finance, and technology and market knowledge. Though a lot of Government initiatives are there but efforts should be made many times more by Government agencies to create awareness about financial schemes, entrepreneurship training etc among women to help boost women entrepreneurship. In this direction effort by CIMSE to organize the workshop for women entrepreneurs wherein SIDBI & NSIC officials made presentations and satisfactorily answered queries by participants is indeed laudable.

The 3 hours event ended with an enlightening e-enabling women session by Mrs. Dolly Bhasin, Director - Incuspaze and networking amongst participants and panelists over coffee.
