Congratulating Tata Play and FTC Talent on this initiative, G20 Sherpa, GOI, Amitabh Kant, said, “In the past decade, India has taken massive strides towards creating a quality entrepreneurship ecosystem. Under the leadership of our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, who envisions India as a global powerhouse across sectors, we have strived to enable a steady rise in the country’s business environment. My heartiest congratulations to Tata Play and FTC Talent on taking this goal of Atmanirbhar Bharat forward with a unique service like Har Ghar Startup. Tata Play’s precedence and reach through the medium of satellite Television, will help us reach millions of homes and provide inspiration to every enterprising individual. I hope more and more Indians benefit from such initiatives.”
Actor and Founder, FTC Talent, Suniel Shetty said, “As an entrepreneur, I often found myself trying to seek useful information through different mediums with little or no success. After speaking with several other business owners across India, I realised that the lack of accurate information on the subject is a country-wide gap. Har Ghar Startup is my first step towards creating a knowledge-sharing ecosystem for budding and established entrepreneurs. I am excited to join forces with Tata Play to take a step towards making India Aatmanirbhar with this initiative.”
