Be part of International Startup India Summit, PM tells youth


New Delhi, Jan 11 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday asked the youth to join the Start-Up India International Summit being held later this week. 

The summit, Prarambh, to be held on January 15-16, will bring together top minds from industry, academia, investment, banking, finance and young startup leaders.

It would also mark five years of the government's Start-Up India initiative, which, Mr Modi said, has propelled India to being among the most attractive start-up eco-systems globally.

"No words can do justice to the spirit of India’s youth. Their penchant for innovation has led to outstanding results.

"Our start-up heroes are not merely coming from big cities but also from smaller towns. This is a good sign," Mr Modi said in a post on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network.

The prime minister said he is looking forward to as many youngsters to take part in the summit.
