 Odisha has got a special recognition for efforts of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in steering the Startup and Smart City initiatives at TiECon-2017 held at TiE Silicon Valley in the United States.

A citation was presented by President TiE Silicon Valley Ram Reddy which was received by Principal Secretary MSME LN Gupta and Secretary E&IT AK Meena.

The citation read, “TiE Silicon Valley recognizes State of Odisha under the leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for their outstanding Progress in fostering Startup Entrepreneurship and their Smart City initiatives”.

Principal Secretary LN Gupta delivered a keynote address highlighting the advantages to the TiE delegates of doing business in the State.

He discussed the benefits that are available to the Entrepreneurs under the Odisha Startup Initiative and Ease of Doing Business framework.

He impressed upon the entrepreneurs to set up their ventures in Odisha, which offers ample opportunities with assured availability of quality infrastructure and technical manpower.

He called upon the Startups, Incubators and Venture funds to take advantage of this new opportunity and join the efforts of State Government in making the state the third largest hub of Startups in the country.

In another Session on ‘How New Government Policies Drive Opportunities’, Meena shared the avenues opened by the new policies on Startup, GST, MSMEs and Smart City for the budding Entrepreneurs.

 More than 6500 TiE delegates from across the world are attending the event.

Notably, the TiECoN- 2017 has a dedicated Stall on Odisha, where the various policy brochures and other promotional material are being made available to the visiting delegates.

The Odisha Stall is witnessing good footfall, said sources.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
