A Women Startup Summit is to be held here on August 1 by the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) with the aim of promoting women entrepreneurship in a big way. The summit will be organised at the Integrated Startup Complex in association with the Indian Women Network floated by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), a KSUM release said Monday.

Kerala has 13 per cent of women participation in the technology startup ecosystem and the state government had taken "proactive steps" for further increasing it. It has implemented multiple policies and schemes, which focus on supporting the women startups. Based on the concept Of Women-By Women-For Women, the state government schemes can be availed by women startups from across the country.

The support facilities offered by the government will be shared at the summit, the release said. The summit aims at encouraging aspiring women professionals to take up their entrepreneurial journey and developing an inclusive entrepreneurship ecosystem in the state.

Successful women leaders, startup founders, policy makers and women entrepreneurs will share their experiences, aspirations and celebrate their success stories revolving round the theme Developing an Inclusive Entrepreneurship Ecosystem at the one-day event, the release said. It will be open for all women professionals, aspiring entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and startup founders.
