Project Description

Tired of always being at the receiving end ? Have you always complained that the country lacks the ecosystem to nurture entrepreneurship?

Through the IDEA Exchange Forum, CEE presented an interactive platform that had brought together policy makers and entrepreneurs for better dialogue. Politician and lawyer Meenakshi Lekhi, Senior BJP leaders Arun Jaitley and Ananth Kumar shared their thoughts on the topic of discussions.

This was your chance to BE HEARD and participate in an exchange of ideas on entrepreneurship and the overall startup ecosystem. The event provided a unique platform that brought together entrepreneurs and policy makers to help build a bridge between the two for better dialogue. It was time to let policy makers know that they needed to initiate the know-how of taking the start-up community to the next level.
