Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh has said that start-Up ecosystem is going to determine India’s future economy and will act as a key pillar for the world economy as well.

Speaking at the ‘Start-up India-2022 Expo and Conclave’ organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce in New Delhi today, Dr Singh said, because of the impetus given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the start-up ecosystem, the number of start-ups in India has grown to 70 thousand from about 300 to 400 in the last eight eight years.

The Minister advised the budding start-up entrepreneurs to look beyond the IT, Computer and Communications sectors to the most unexplored and the richest farm sector, which is awaiting a huge tech revolution after the Green Revolution. Calling for promoting Agri-tech start-ups in a big way, the Minister said, Agriculture is one of the important pillars of the Indian economy as it accounts for around 20 per cent of GDP.
