Startups are not a fashion these days, they are the new normal. They are the new Reality emerging out of the deep structural changes in the Indian economy ushered by the proactive policies & reforms initiated by the Narendra Modi Government over the last 8 years, said Union Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship in reply to one of the questions posed by a student during his presentation - “ New India for Young India : Techade of Opportunities “ at the NIRMA  University, Ahmedabad.

Goods and services exports have set new records ( $400Bn - Goods exports , $254 Bn - Services exports ) & receiving highest ever FDI of over $80 Bn.

The session also invited questions from a packed crowd of Students and Startups.

The Minister answered all the questions and also gave tips to students and budding entrepreneurs.
