K’taka would soon take top slot for women entrepreneurship: CM
Rolling out red carpet to women entrepreneurs, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday expressed confidence that with several initiatives taken, the state would soon occupy the top slot for women entrepreneurship.
He urged women entrepreneurs to explore entrepreneurial opportunities in Karnataka and make the state their base.
“I am happy to note that Karnataka’s diversity ratio in employment and entrepreneurship is amongst the best in India.
Our eco-system is regarded as the benchmark for women to live and work and I am happy that we are in the right direction,” Siddaramaiah said at the event “ThinkBig 2016”.
He said that according to the fourth Medium, Small and Micro Enterprises (MSME) census, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have 51.9 per cent of the country’s women-owned business indicating the potential that exists in our State and country.
“I am sure with the initiatives taken up, Karnataka would soon be in the top slot...,” he said.
“ThinkBig 2016”, which is projected to be Asia’s largest women entrepreneurship and economic empowerment summit, is being organised by Karnataka government, together with WEConnect International in India and Thinkthrough Consulting (TTC).
