The state aims to make Kerala a preferred destination for start-up firms, said said PK Kunhalikutty, minister for industries & IT
The state government was offering support to the young and aspiring entrepreneurs to build a vibrant and ‘job creating’ Kerala and turn the state from the land of job seekers to a land of job creators, said PK Kunhalikutty, minister for industries and information technology, here today.
Addressing the Young Entrepreneurs Summit (YES), he said Kerala had tried different modules like GIM (Global Investors’ Meet) and Emerging Kerala. But these efforts did not lead any tangible gains.
“Finally, after long deliberations and brainstorming sessions, we have come to the conclusion that we can bank on young minds with innovative ideas to write a different story,” he said. The state government’s ultimate aim is to make Kerala the preferred destination for start-up firms.
Aruna Sundararajan, additional chief secretary and managing director of Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC) said the meet would act as a spring board to achieve dreams of the youth, and the state will offer entire support covering all aspects to build a successful enterprise.
