“With the objective that India must become a nation of job creators instead of being a nation of job seekers, we launched the StartUp India initiative in January, 2016. This initiative aims at fostering entrepreneurship and promoting innovation by creating an ecosystem that is conducive for the growth of Start-ups. As a part of this initiative, we are proud to present the StartUp India Learning Program, a free course in entrepreneurship developed by UpGrad for Invest India. We hope that many budding entrepreneurs of India will benefit from this program and get the right learning to start their dream ventures.” – Ramesh Abhishek, DIPP Secretary.
