Startup India Prarambh Summit
The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) is all set to host ‘Prarambh’, the Start-up India International Summit, virtually on January 15 and 16, 2021. The summit is expected to bring together top policy-makers, industry, academia, investors, start-ups and all stakeholders from across the globe to celebrate five years of the launch of the Startup India initiative, which was first announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Independence Day speech on August 15, 2015 from the ramparts of the Red Fort in New Delhi.
The two-day virtual summit will bring together over 200 speakers from around the world and India, facilitate discussions on technologies, innovation, robust policies, and initiatives, enable government and international organizations to share their views and set on fire the minds of young Indian entrepreneurs, driving them to solve the problems and challenges that matter, not just for India but also for the entire world.
In addition, the sessions are designed to showcase the spread and depth of entrepreneurship based on innovation in India. The main objective of the summit is to catch the attention of global capital for startups in India, mobilize domestic capital, provide opportunities for accessing international markets to our startups and evolve enabling policy provisions.
Talking about the Startup India International Summit on social media platforms, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “No words can do justice to the spirit of India’s youth. Their penchant for innovation has led to outstanding results. Our start-up heroes are not merely coming from big cities but also from smaller towns. This is a good sign. I look forward to as many youngsters as possible joining the Start-Up India International Summit.”
Startup India is a flagship initiative of the Government of India, intended to build a strong ecosystem for nurturing innovation and startups in the country, that will drive sustainable economic growth and generate large-scale employment opportunities.
The virtual summit is expected to bring together top policy-makers, industry, academia, investors, startups and all stakeholders from across the globe.
