After Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh is planning to set up a Startup Village.
A high-level delegation comprising top officials of the Chhattisgarh government visited the Kochi-based Startup Village to learn more about the incubation facility and explore ways to set up a similar service in their state.
The delegation led by Rajat Kumar, Joint Secretary to the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, visited the Startup Village on Friday and had discussions with the executives to understand its working model and their possible support and expertise in setting up a facility at Naya Raipur.
“We are very impressed with the whole ecosystem that MobMe (the promoters), the Union Department of Science and Technology, Kerala government and other players have together created for the young entrepreneurs,” Rajat Kumar said.
“The Chhattisgarh government is also planning to start a project along similar lines. We saw inspired, motivated young boys and girls turning their ideas into useful products and applications. We are sure that the environment provided here will go a long way in not only providing employment to lot of youngsters but also to make India a true IT hub,” he said.
“It is amazing. Startup Village has set an example for the industry and we have come here to learn more about it. We want to replicate this model in our state to provide opportunities to our youth,” said Chhattisgarh Infotech and Biotech Promotion Society CEO Saurabh Kumar.
