Central and State Governments supported SWEEP-2017 through the ministries of MSME (Govt of India & Govt of Madhya Pradesh), Women & Child Development (Govt of Madhya Pradesh) and Renewable Energy (Govt of Madhya Pradesh). Women entrepreneurs interacted with and learnt from experts from Export Promotion Councils, Exim bank, credit rating agencies and corporates like Walmart, IBM and others.
