The Madhya Pradesh Government is in talks with Kochi-based a technology business incubator Startup Village, that is funded jointly by public and private sectors, to set up a similar incubation facility in the state.
As per a TechCircle report, M Selvendran IAS, managing director of MP State Electronics Development Corporation (MPSEDC) has discussed the method of functioning and other activities of the incubator with Pranav Kumar Suresh, Startup Village’s CEO and its management team.
We plan to seek support from the management and the technical team of Startup Village to devise a strategy to build a similar incubator in the state,” said Selvendran said.
“We also shared our views as to what needs to go into creating a dynamic entrepreneurship ecosystem. It is the recognition of the quality work done by our startups and the depth of the programmes conceptualised and implemented by the Startup Village,” said Startup Village chairman Sanjay Vijayakumar.
Startup Village was started in 2012 by co-founder Deepak Ravindran, with an aim to help start-ups create cutting-edge technologies for the global telecommunication technology. Its goal is to mentor 1,000 tech start-ups over the next 10 years and focuses on the student start-ups and telecom innovation.
