India wants women to help drive its tech boom

India wants women to help drive its tech boom

New Delhi (CNN Business)India has hardly any startups founded by women. The government and tech industry are hoping to change that, and create millions of jobs in the process.

Only about 8% to 10% of Indian entrepreneurs are women, according to a senior executive at India’s main tech industry body Nasscom. That’s far lower than the United States, where 39% of privately-held firms are owned by women, according to a report last year by American Express.
“Hopefully in the next three to four years time, the number of women entrepreneurs, technology-led, will be drastically changed,” KS Vishwanathan, vice president of industry initiatives at Nasscom, said at a conference in New Delhi on Tuesday.
