Startup India is about realising millions of dreams, said Piyush Goyal. Presenting the National Startup Awards 2021, the Union Minister of Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Textiles, said the Startup Mission was a symbol of self-reliant and self-confident India.
Be it a fisherman’s son from Chennai or a boatman’s daughter from Kashmir, they all want to bring prosperity to their families and their people, and therefore are thinking bigger and bolder, said Goyal.
Prime Minister Modi believes in the potential of Startups to contribute significantly to the growth of the nation during the Amritkaal, the next 25 years. He recognises innovation as the strongest pillar to make India ‘Aatmanirbhar’ Goyal pointed out. According to him, Prime Minister PM focuses on three pillars to strengthen innovation. First is liberating entrepreneurs from the web of government processes and bureaucratic silos, – over 25,000 compliances reduced, decriminalisation of laws, etc. He is also thinking of what is possible to help businesses grow and prosper in an easier environment. The second pillar is about building institutional mechanisms, strengthening regulatory processes and self-regulation. The third is the Handholding of young innovators and new enterprises. Mentoring will define innovation in the future.
