ICC Enters MoU With IIMCIP Towards Energizing The Startup Ecosystem In East & Northeast India
The Indian Chamber of Commerce(ICC), since its inception in 1925 has been one of the most proactive and forward-looking Chambers in the country. ICC’s forte is its ability to anticipate the needs of the future, respond to challenges, and prepare the stakeholders in the economy to benefit from these changes and opportunities.
As a natural progression of this vision, ICC has initiated a Start-up Incubation Cell to handhold startups in the country. As part of our endeavour to take forward the agenda of sensitizing the start-up ecosystem in the country, the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has also launched the ‘STARTUPRENEUR’, our newsletter on startups and entrepreneurship. ICC services for startup entrepreneurs in the country include facilitating funding, queries, meetings, Market Connect, Legal Connect, Mentoring, B2B and B2G interactions.
Taking our initiative one step further towards building meaningful synergies in the start-up ecosystem in India, the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is signing an MOU with IIM Calcutta Innovation Park (IIMCIP), a not for profit (Section 8) company established under the aegis of IIM Calcutta to promote Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
This would help to promote the startup enterprises in East and Northeast India, thereby ensuring greater employment generation and all-round socio-economic development of the region. The start-ups would hugely benefit from the opportunities for mentoring and industry connect.
ICC hope this initiative would be a game changer for the start-up movement in East and Northeast India.
