“Jharkhand has become the hub for start-ups over the last decade. The number of emerging enterprises has grown and has slowly made room for manufacturing and service-oriented companies. It has made notable contributions to the flourishing of the state’s economy and ensures ease of doing business. Entrepreneurs are the drivers of the nation’s economy; they stimulate development and employment. Inculcating entrepreneurial skills and spirit into the budding innovators of tomorrow is a part of the national push towards making India a hub of innovation.”
