Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal suggested that colleges should look at entrepreneurship courses
Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal said that new-age entrepreneurs are going to change the fortune of India. Speaking at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) event on ‘Launch of India's Future Business Group’, he said that India should engage with other countries and build a platform with trusted partners to promote new-age business.
Goyal further said that youngsters are going to change the fortune of India, create jobs, and bring prosperity. The real startup entrepreneur with ideas is the Prime Minister, he added.
“We have a huge start-up ecosystem in India. It's more about recognizing our capabilities, uplifting our entrepreneurs. Some of the ideas that youngsters have come up with are truly revolutionary,” he added.
He suggested that colleges should look at entrepreneurship or other courses around new-age businesses.
Talking about the improvement in India’s rank from 52 to 48 in the Global Innovation Index, Goyal said “Let us all work together to truly make India the innovation hub. We have a huge startup ecosystem. I have no doubt that the spirit of the industry will even encourage even the Government to proactively go forward with new ideas and processes to make it easier & simpler to do business in India. No power on earth can stop us from succeeding.”
Goyal appealed to the senior business leaders to become mentors to the new and young entrepreneurs and encourage them.
The Commerce and Industry minister said that Aatmanirbhar Bharat is only the beginning of India's self-realization of its own potential to grow which will contribute to the global economy from a position of strength and trusted partner in resilient global supply chains.
“The objective is to get growth back in India. We will all have to work collectively to achieve that,” he added.
