Odisha MSME Dept. Organises Interactive Meet with Startups

Startups need to chart out their own journey and there is no standard script to it, said the CEO of T-Hub, Hyderabad Shri Jay Krishnan during an "interactive meet with startups" organised by MSME Department of the state, where more than 125 Startups, incubators and mentors participated.

He added that the startups should dream big and should not worry about the availability of capital. Capital is not an end but a means to achieve the end. If the startup venture is related to the requirement of the market, there are enough agencies to fund the project. He lauded that role of the government which is quite supportive of the startup eco-system. Startups should not be worried about failures; rather these failures should become the source of their learning. It is for the first time, such an interactive session with startups in Odisha was held and was marked by tremendous enthusiasm amongst the startups attending the session today at IDCO Conference Hall, Bhubaneswar.

Shri L.N. Gupta, IAS, Principal Secretary, MSME, who chaired the interactive session, stated that currently more than 200 startups are working in the state in various incubators as well as outside. The state also has more than 20 incubators at present. He added that under the Odisha Startup Policy, 2016, we have the vision to create an enabling environment and supporting eco-system that would facilitate 1000 startups in the state in the next five years. The state government is committed to develop the best startup eco-system in the state. Shri Sanjay K. Singh, IAS, Commissioner-cum-Secretary, SD&TE Department & MD, IDCO also attended and participated in the session.
