New Delhi, October 27: Union Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday said at an event that futuristic vision combined with decisiveness has provided India with a solid startup ecosystem. He spoke this at the inauguration of the 1st Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Startup Forum.

Goyal highlighted how India's startups have demonstrated their ability to convert this severe adversity amid the coronavirus pandemic into a great potential of the future. He further lauded Indian startups for demonstrating high energy and enthusiasm to give many timely and cost-effective solutions. He mentioned that this forum is an opportunity for all the member nations to share and learn from their experiences.

Goyal said creativity, innovation and disruption will be the new mandate in the emerging future. The minister said the new unique concepts that startups come up with will get a much larger engagement through this forum, according to a report on PTI.

"Sharing our best practices, knowledge, engaging corporates and investors from all the member nations, monetising and mobilising capital, setting up incubators, providing exposure and scale with market access will certainly help the worthy ideas of our startups' innovations," Goyal added.
