E-commerce firm exhorts to celebrate PM Birthday as ‘World Startup Day’

E-commerce firm exhorts to celebrate PM Birthday as ‘World Startup Day’

Chandigarh, Sep 16 (UNI) founder and Chief Executive Officer(CEO) K S Bhatia has called upon startups across the country to celebrate the forthcoming 70th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 17 as ‘World Startup Day’.
"Modi has given us World Yoga Day and now it is time for the entire startup community to observe 'World Startup Day' on the honorable PM's 70th birthday due to his immense contribution to the growth of the startup scene in the country," Bhatia said.
“Modi has been lucky for all start-up entrepreneurs since the very day he took an oath as Prime Minister on 26th May 2014, coinciding the launch of Pumpkart on the very day. If we talk about startups Modi can be given the sobriquet of ‘Startup Prime Minister of India’ as under his governance, India became the third-largest startup in the world’s ecosystem with more than 31 unicorns from the nation,” he added.
It is interesting to note that Google CEO Sundar Pichai appreciated Bhatia for his startup idea at his digital India speech in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the United States. Pumpkart also holds the distinction of being the first startup to represent India at the United Nations and has signed Kapil Dev the legendary cricketer as its brand Ambassador.
Bhatia further said, “Modi is the first PM who supported startups in India and contributed by creating some very pertinent platforms like Startup India, Digital India, Make in India, Atmanirbhar Bharat, Vocal for Local, etc which have become instrumental for the spawning of a well-entrenched startup culture.”
