The J & K administration in the recent past is trying to encourage investments so that youth get job opportunities. Recently LG Manoj Sinha said that the aim is to build a strong ecosystem for nurturing innovation and startups in J&K and the synergies between industrial and academic establishments will encourage and empower young innovators and boost private investment in startups.
The startup revolution has now started in J&K, the start-ups under Aroma Mission being the best starting points under it, creating household names in India like Bharat Bhushan, the brand ambassador of Aroma Mission in India who not only doubled but quadrupled his income in only a few years.
The Startup ecosystem in J&K is turning the youth of J&K into job providers rather than the job seekers. The ideas of young minds are heard, polished, funded and handholded by the government agencies under the guidance of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha. The creation of industry innovation clusters by the government is encouraging youth to choose their own destiny and become role models for the younger generation.
The Center for Innovation and Economic Development (CIED) provides young innovators an opportunity to turn their startup ideas into reality. Recently, Union MoS, Dr Jitendra Singh, while addressing a mammoth public rally in North India’s first Industrial Biotech Park at Ghatti, said the utility would act as hub for incubation of new ideas and a robust platform to support the agri-entrepreneurs, startups, progressive farmers, scientists, scholars and students not only from Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh but also from nearby states of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.
