Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented
the Union Budget today for the financial year 2020-21. Unfortunately, the budget did very little to support the startup ecosystem directly and much less for women entrepreneurs who did not gain even a single mention in the budget.
“A lot is being done for Beti bachao, beti padao, but we were expecting the government to go a step further to encourage female entrepreneurs but that has not happened as of yet. Maybe we were expecting a lot,” said Himani Khanna and Puja Kapoor, cofounders, Continua kids.
