I believe this carnival is going to have a long-term impact, and it will facilitate a lot of new collaborations and discourse among new-age entrepreneurs in Kolkata and West Bengal”, added MeghdutRoychowdhury, who is also the conceptualiser of the start-up carnival.

‘It is really heartening to see the work being done by the Techno India group in getting the startup Ecosystem in the Eastern states of India to come up to speed with what's happening in the other part of the country.

While Delhi and Bangalore are the startup nerve centres, Kolkotta can become the gateway for bright youngsters from the North East and other states to address challenges and create opportunities to build sustainable and scalable businesses for the rest of the country. Techno India, through its own institutions, its alumni network and partnerships with Investor and mentor networks, can accelerate the Innovation and the startup culture in this part of the country. The fact that they, without any hesitation, decided to be part of the Bharat Mala ride initiative is encouraging for the startup founders who are part of this epic journey.’ Said John Kuruvilla Chief Mentor@ Brigade
