Decoding government support to women entrepreneurs in India
MSC collaborated with NITI Aayog’s Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP) to publish this report, which maps 70 central schemes and 433 state schemes across 28 states in India. The report identifies scheme-based support available across six essential needs of entrepreneurs and shares some best practices implemented by state governments to improve access and uptake of schemes. Read the report for key recommendations on the design and delivery of schemes to make them more accessible and effective for women entrepreneurs.
MSC, alongside several partners has collated inspiring stories of grassroots leaders. These stories are testament to their grit and resilience and reveal a glimpse of women’s hardships at the last mile.
This video highlights the hurdles women entrepreneurs face in a male-dominated industry, based on start-ups under the Financial Inclusion Lab accelerator program that work to support the LMI workforce. The Lab is a part of CIIE.CO’s Bharat Inclusion Initiative and receives support from some of the largest philanthropic organizations across the world. These include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, J.P. Morgan, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, MetLife Foundation, and the Omidyar Network.
