Bengaluru, 24 Jan (KNN) The increasing presence of women entrepreneurs has led to the change in the demographic characteristics of business and economic growth of the country. Women-owned business enterprises are playing a prominent role in society inspiring others and generating more employment opportunities in the country. 

Many women entrepreneurs in Karnataka have started their businesses with new concepts. Amid covid, this budget should focus on women entrepreneurs. These women need handhold support and even need high-end technology support, said Priya Puranik, State Secretary, Laghu Udyog Bharati.

While talking to KNN India, Puranik said, “My request to the government is to identify startups owned by women entrepreneurs and support them. Vocal for local is the main vision. In the olden days, we used to say only Swadeshi and Videshi. But now we are concentrating on Sthaniya also, women entrepreneurs should get industry plot on reasonable rates. Every district should have women entrepreneurs park."

Previously, Karnataka Large and Medium Industries Minister Murugesh R Nirani addressed women entrepreneurs during the 38th award ceremony of the Association of Women Entrepreneurs of Karnataka (AWAKE), Nirani said women-owned enterprises are growing significantly.
