Entrepreneurs are often chock-full of brilliant ideas and compelling ways to implement them but lack the necessary infrastructure, financial aid, community support, etc. In a bid to unlock the potential of entrepreneurship in Goa and make it the most preferred startup and IT destination of India, Mr. Rohan Khaunte - Minister of Revenue, IT, Labour and Employment, Government of Goa - certified 31 Goan startups for registering themselves under the Startup India Cell at the 3rd High Powered Committee meeting. Globally acknowledged as the land of sea and sun, Goa is on a mission to showcase its other side – as the go-to destination for IT firms and startups. Learning from the success and challenges faced by the startup boom in larger cities, Goa is leveraging its unique strengths to be among the Top 25 startup destinations in Asia by 2025. Startups that are less than 5 years old and make a gross yearly profit of less than Rs. 25 Cr. were eligible to register themselves under the Startup India Cell. Bootcamp along with three of its other sister companies (namely Creometric, Ninestack and Creoplay) registered themselves under this scheme to avail its benefits. The man of the hour, Mr. Rohan Khaunte delivered a passionate discourse on why Indian entrepreneurs need to be in Goa. He elaborated on the state’s new focus on IT and startups. One of his goals, he stated, was to formulate a startup culture where the youth of the state became job creators and not job seekers. He also encouraged all the registered startups to apply for incentive schemes under the Goa Startup Policy that have been specially curated to upscale and support the start-up ecosystem in Goa. The state government is also offering a host of financial and infrastructural incentives for businesses to come to Goa. These policies aim to support startup talents from the next generation and bring in a wealth of expertise and industry relations to the state of Goa. At Bootcamp, we offer hands-on training and learning experience in a variety of courses such as digital marketing, app development, website designing, graphic designing, animation, photography etc. If you would want to join any of our Bootcamp courses, then reach out to us on 9920853511 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
