On this occasion Sivasubramanian Ramann, CMD, SIDBI stated that “Women Empowerment has always been a priority for SIDBI. Our Umbrella Mission Swavalamban, which endeavours to induce entrepreneurship culture, regard women as mainstay influencer on the society leading to transitioning of Aspirant Bharat from job seeker to Job creator. It is pleasing to know that ‘SWAVALAMBAN SASHAKT- Webinar Series” has kindled aspirations of more than 1500 aspirants. I am sure many of these are ready to embark on entrepreneurial journey under national mission of Stand up India Scheme. With reduction of margin and addition of agri allied activities as eligible, GoI has widened the scope and access of the scheme. Aspirant youths should gear up to leverage these. I can assure that SIDBI shall further strengthen the digital eco system of Stand-Up India through Udyamimitra in order to create more opportunities and success stories of growth and business under Atmanirbhar India “
