“For Economy to prosper, a proper Start-Up Ecosystem is crucial”- Suresh Prabhu

Hon. Railway minister of India Shri Suresh Prabhu said, “It feels nice that PM Modi’s initiative, ‘Start up India, Stand up India’, is bringing fruit, now that many premier institutes are promoting entrepreneurship through their own incubation centres.”

Recalling the factors that led to the inception of the courier service provider Delhivery, Mr. Bhavesh Manglani, COO and Co-founder, said that the traditional delivery channels were expensive and time consuming. “Backed by a robust and technologically sound supply chain, Delhivery aspires to fulfill all e-commerce consumption transactions in India”, he added. Talking about the importance of data analytics, he said, “Data Analytics is to B-School Grads, what IT revolution was for Engineers”.
