Being indoors for the most of 2020 meant everyone had to alter their work styles. Work from home is in, so is greater adapting to technology. For me, it meant more programmes online, which were extremely productive and insightful.
There were interactions with scientists, medical professionals, COVID warriors, academics, industry leaders, young innovators, spiritual leaders and more. There were virtual summits, both bilateral and multilateral with world leaders.
There were public programmes across Bharat, in which path-breaking development schemes were launched. I even interacted with lakhs of beneficiaries of existing government schemes. One big advantage of this new normal is, you all can be a part of these programmes sitting at home! Back in the day, if a programme was being held in one city, a person from another city found it tough to attend. That has changed.
One such opportunity is coming up on 15th-16th January, in the form of #Prarambh, the Startup India International Summit. This Summit seeks to bring together the top minds from industry, academia, investment, banking, finance and of course, young start up leaders.
We would also be marking 5 years since the the Start-Up India initiative began. This initiative has propelled Bharat to being among the most attractive start-up eco-systems globally.
No words can do justice to the spirit of Bharat’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 to join the Start-Up India International Summit.
