Indore, May 31 (KNN) Madhya Pradesh government is considering to establish a startup clinic wherein experts will provide mentorship and hand holding to budding entrepreneurs.
Madhya Pradesh Youth Commission chairman Dr Nishant Khare said on Tuesday that the startup clinic will be set up in public–private partnership (PPP) mode, reported TOI.
“We are planning to form a startup clinic on a PPP mode where experts would give voluntary service and mentor startups,” said Khare.
