DIPP Secretary Ramesh Abhishek raised important issues surrounding women entrepreneurship at the Digital Women Awards organised by SheThePeople.TV – from increasing funding opportunities to growing the mentoring ecosystem. In a powerfully worded talk he talked of systemic issues in gender inequality and why there was a need to fix and reverse the trends around women participation in entrepreneurship.

Abhishek said the government was planning a reality television show for entrepreneurs. He also said the government would welcome more suggestions from women entrepreneurs especially in areas where they struggled the most and that included funding and scaling up challenges.
