Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant on Monday announced that Indian startups are affecting the world in many means, particularly in the modern developing sectors of health and agriculture.

Addressing a program by FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO), Amitabh Kant told that women entrepreneurs are the vehicles to get a more equal society. He further asserted that India currently has more than 61,000 start-ups and 81 unicorns.

“Indian start-ups are disrupting the world primarily in new developing regions of health, nutrition and agriculture,” he announced. According to Kant, women-owned businesses and enterprises are playing a very crucial role in the nation and will soon be the subsequent big disruption within the Indian start-up ecosystem.

“Women-based entrepreneurship is one of the vehicles for getting a more equal society as more women take on entrepreneurship, it performs as a catalyst for socio-economic transformation, by strengthening women’s agency and status,” he said.

The Niti Aayog CEO reported that presently venture capital (VC) and private equity firms are helping women start-ups. “This will help frame strategies and propose appropriate steps to promote healthy growth of startups and will help improve women entrepreneurship,” he announced.

Kant told that today India is a compelling growth story steadied for rapid development in consumption, urbanisation, digitisation along with surging income levels. To all the women entrepreneurs constituting potential entrepreneurs, he asserted: “The world is watching at India very favourably.”
