The Government of Manipur, on Wednesday, launched the Start-Up Manipur Outreach Program at the YPA Hall in Churachandpur district.
Devesh Deval, IAS, Commissioner (Planning/PHED/Tourism) inaugurated the event in the presence of other dignitaries from the state.
Speaking on the occasion, Devesh Deval, IAS said, “Start-Up means we have to encourage entrepreneurship and support people who want to do business.”
He further stated that the main aim of the summit is to build a strong eco-system for nurturing innovation that will drive sustainable economic growth and generate large-scale employment opportunities.
“The focus at the national and state level is to promote entrepreneurship so that people make a better life for themselves and their families and also contribute to the country’s economy,” he added.
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.
