The Centre has organised the first-ever Startup India "Innovation Week" from Monday.

A slew of Indian startups on Sunday hailed Prime Minister's National Startup Day initiative, saying that the commemoration will not only encourage the country's innovators and young entrepreneurs but also help boost global investors' confidence in their contribution to economic growth.

In a virtual meeting with over 160 leading startups on Saturday, Modi said that like small businesses, which are the spine of India's economy, startups are turning out to be the game changers. "We have played a small role in inspiring new-age founders to think beyond existing categories and take up challenges that solve real social problems, even if it requires creating a new category altogether. 'Businesses with a cause' is critical to continue writing the great Indian startup story," Chitresh Sharma, CEO and Co-founder of fintech platform Refyne, told IANS.
