The Union Minister for Education and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Dharmendra Pradhan, participated in the roundtable event of Startup Conclave 2023 yesterday in Gandhinagar, setting the stage for the upcoming Vibrant Gujarat 2024 Summit. The event saw the presence of eminent venture capitalists, unicorns, investors, global accelerators, and industrialists who engaged in insightful discussions.

During his address at the conclave, Pradhan commended India's entrepreneurial spirit, emphasizing that the nation's innovators have consistently shattered perceived limits. He lauded their ideas, imagination, and innovation, stating that they will play a pivotal role in creating a more sustainable, prosperous, and equitable world.

Expressing gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Pradhan credited the Prime Minister's visionary policies for propelling India to become the third-largest startup ecosystem globally. The minister's remarks underscored the significant strides made in fostering entrepreneurship and innovation across the country.

The Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, a biennial event conceptualized in 2003 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi (then Chief Minister of Gujarat), continues to be a key platform for driving economic growth.

The Startup Conclave 2023, organized by the Education Department of the Government of Gujarat in collaboration with Startup India-Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India (MeitY), and the Department of Science & Technology (DST), serves as a prelude to the Vibrant Gujarat 2024 Summit.

Today's Startup Conclave brings together an influential network of startup investors, angel networks, industry leaders, and global accelerators. The event promises a dynamic exchange of ideas, fostering collaboration and exploring limitless possibilities within the startup ecosystem.

As India continues to evolve into a global hub for innovation and entrepreneurship, events like the Startup Conclave 2023 play a pivotal role in catalyzing growth, attracting investments, and providing a platform for stakeholders to shape the future of the startup landscape.
