Indian Startups Are Changing The Way Of Work Around The World

NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant on Monday said Indian startups are transforming the way the world operates. Women entrepreneurship is the main vehicle for a more equal society.

Speaking at the Women’s Organization (FLO) event of industry body FICCI, Kant said that there are currently more than 61,000 startups and 81 unicorns (startups with a valuation of over $1 billion) in India. These startups are transforming the way the world operates, especially in the newly emerging areas of health, nutrition and agriculture.

Women-owned business enterprises are playing a major role in the society and will soon bring about a paradigm shift in the Indian startup environment. At present, venture capital and private equity companies are supporting women startups.
