“This is for the first time senior management executives of (multinational companies) MNC’s will be training startups in J&K and offer end to end solutions. The idea is to equip budding entrepreneurs with vision and strategy to promote their entrepreneurial ventures and become employers, not employees”, said JKSDM official.
