Government Support to Women Entrepreneurs:
“Imagine that you want to have a beautiful garden at your home. You buy the seeds, the manure, the soil, the pots and everything that you need to set up a garden at your home – but then you realise that you forgot to seek approval from your parents about it and then you are forced to withdraw the idea because your parents aren’t supporting enough. Well, in case of startups – the Government is that parent whose support can turn the tables upside down, and especially when the point of debate is the benefit that is associated with lending support to women – the boost that it provides and the sense of equity and equality that’s embedded among the masses. Let’s see what our women have to say about the Government and it’s support to entrepreneurs.” Shubam Kumar
