The new Startup Policy of Madhya Pradesh is quite different from the old policy. One important feature being added in the MP Startup Policy 2022 is the concept of ‘MP Startup Centre’. Earlier, only one policy was being implemented by the state administration, but the new policy will be implemented in tandem with the MP Startup Centre. The Startup Centre will have a dedicated office, a head/mentor for every startup and experts from the relevant field, who will help the startup community.
The introduction of the new start-up policy and the organization of the Start-up Conclave 2022 in Indore is in line with the Madhya Pradesh administration’s aim of making the state a magnet for start-ups, by encouraging the youth of the state to give wings to their aspirations and become job creators. Around 1,800 startups have been established in Madhya Pradesh. It is remarkable that around 40 per cent of these have been established by women.
