Govt sets up platform to help startups connect with investors, mentors


In order to encourage entrepreneurship across the country, the Government of India has set up a platform to help startups to connect with investors, mentors and the right talents.


As per the report in an English daily, the platform will be made officially public this week by IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Entrepreneur Deepak Agarwal will be leading the team as suggested by the Ministry of Electronics and IT (Meity).

As per the government official, “ the platform will connect startups from smaller or rural parts of India to mentor and investors. It will give startups web space to showcase their enterprise, connect to incubation centres, seek guidance from mentors, benefit from government schemes, access centres of excellence, and avail R&D facilities and labs.”

To drive this program the government has partnered with companies like HSBC, Qualcomm, and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
