Chief Secretary of Nagaland, Temjen Toy launching the ‘Startup India in Nagaland’ portal in Kohima, on August 16, said that it was the right time and the right initiative to introduce the portal to provide the most enabling ecosystem to support and nurture startup entrepreneurs in the State as the youth need mentorship and guidance.
‘Having a start-up policy will help the aspiring youth to become successful entrepreneurs,’ he also mentioned that through this portal in addition to the constant support of the startup cell, unemployed youths will get assistance and an environment to start and venture out their own line of business. He also expressed gratitude to the Industries and Commerce department for initiating the portal and hoped that many youths will be benefited and help them be at par with other entrepreneurs from the State.

Chishi, IAS said that Startup India in Nagaland will facilitate startups to access various resources of the ‘Startup Eco System’ available in the State. It will create an enabling environment to address the aspirations of youth, and to engage with all stakeholders of the startup eco-system for strengthening the start-ups with appropriate incubation and mentoring infrastructure, develop human capital, provide fast track statutory support and network of appropriate funding agencies.
