Private sector to drive growth, govt to facilitate: Amitabh Kant
The key driver of the growth is the private sector and the government has to act as a facilitator and catalyst, says NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant in his address during Fortune India's The Next 500: Breaking New Frontiers event.
“We have over 101 Unicorns and 76,000 startups in the country as compared to just 100-odd startups four years ago. During the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, India had 44 unicorns and now we are having 3-4 new unicorns every month, which shows the energy, vibrancy, and dynamism of our startup movement in India,” Kant avers.
The Next 500 entrepreneurs will really shape the future of India, exclaims Kant.
