Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi interacted with startups via video conferencing under the “Celebrating Innovation Ecosystem” section of the event. During that interaction, he said that programs like Startup India and Standup India would further strengthen India’s title of ‘Techade’.
Highlighting the massive changes that the government is making in this decade to strengthen the innovation, entrepreneurship and start-up ecosystem, the Prime Minister said that it has three important aspects.
- To liberate entrepreneurship, innovation from the web of government processes, and bureaucratic silos.
- Creating an institutional mechanism to promote innovation.

In order to spread startup culture, everywhere across the country, 16 January was celebrated as ‘National Startup Day’. “2022 has brought new horizons for Indian startup ecosystem. When India will complete 100 years of independence, startups will play a huge role,” PM Modi said.
