17 July, Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) launched off a two-day business Leadership Summit in Sempora, Pampore, with the goal of bolstering the business ecosystem in J&K.
The ceremony was opened by Vikramjit Singh, the Commissioner Secretary of Industries and Commerce.
The government of Jammu and Kashmir plans to play a supportive role by helping to fund, assist, and advise new businesses in the region. “We are dedicated to enriching and empowering this ecosystem so that an entire society can reap the benefits of the new phase of certainty and stability into which the Union territory is entering,” he added.
The India Network has helped to organize this meeting.
According to Rahul Narvekar, CEO of The India Network, the goal of the summit is to increase the number of successful startups in the state of Jammu and Kashmir by 100.
The reaction has been fantastic, and there is a lot of energy among the young people. When it comes to helping local entrepreneurs succeed, we would do anything we can,” Narvekar stated.
According to Ajaz Ahmad Bhat, director of JKEDI, the conference will focus on crucial issues facing entrepreneurs today, such as budgeting, marketing, legal and regulatory frameworks, and securing capital.
This is the eleventh event we’ve held this year, and we want to inspire young people to start their own businesses as a result. Our startup owners and hopefuls will get insight from the specialists present, who are CEOs from a wide range of industries. He said that the conference’s focus will be on how innovation and the adoption of new technology may spur company expansion.
Sonia Khurana, founder and chief executive officer of Wyn Studio, spoke on the importance of storytelling for business leaders. Her talk, “Kahani Kya Hai” (What’s the Story), discussed how telling stories may help launch a business.
Alpha Consultants co-founders Dinesh Singh and Amit Mishra spoke at the event, imparting knowledge from their years of experience in business consulting and financial management. At the event, The India Network’s Chief Operating Officer Himani Bhagat shared her strategic insights. Her talk focused on the many ways that would-be business owners might get their hands on capital to launch their ventures.
Many new entrepreneurs were there to show off their wares alongside the established professionals. They cited it as a crucial medium for expanding their business.
More than just a chance to sell our wares, this conference will also serve as a valuable source of guidance and advice. One of the attendees said, “This is the place where our business can grow, and for those who are aspirants, this place will provide all the mentorship and other help, which is great for us.”
Entrepreneurs will get the chance to pitch their company ideas and plans to a panel of investors from all around the nation during the summit’s two days of interactive pitching sessions. These investors will provide prospective business owners with invaluable comments, mentoring, and, perhaps most importantly, investment options.
Participants will not only learn from and network with subject matter experts and industry veterans during the expert sessions and pitching sessions. These people will act as mentors and guides, imparting their knowledge and offering advice on many elements of starting a business.
