Pawan Yadav, IAS, the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Churachandpur said that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the state’s economy and the initiative will help budding entrepreneurs to be self-reliant and in the process pave way for economic development.

The unique program is a collaborative effort taken by the state government and other stakeholders to encourage the start-up ecosystem in order to facilitate economic growth in the state.

The project will offer much-needed support and guidance to the youths who want to delve into entrepreneurship but do not have the mentorship and guidance required to start a new business.
