Have been involved in facilitating the startup eco-system since the year 2015 when Startup Assam started a monthly interactive meet with new and prospective startups in Guwahati.In these regular monthly meetings,interested start-ups would come and pitch their ideas and there would be regular discussions on business pitching,funding etc.Over time,more events and competitions in the startup space gained popularity and it was in the year 2019 that the Assam Startup Incubation Centre (The NEST)  was setup by the government of Assam.This marked a new beginning of a structured support to the startups and the startup eco-system evolved.

Got an opportunity to be a part of Jury in various startup initiatives and have been regularly mentoring startups. Few initiatives taken up include

  1. Started a Facebook page named start-upne for creating awareness and for information dissemination
  2. Organised events/programmes for start-ups including the first North East EntrepreneurshipSummit in the region (NERES)
  3. Introduced a structured mentoring support to the start-ups
