“We look forward to a productive and inspiring event that will be attended by our brilliant and innovative Atal Incubation Centre. By participating in such an event, we can witness the latest developments in the field of entrepreneurship and technology. The roundtable discussion, which will involve bright entrepreneurs, will provide a rich insight into our incubation center that is always brimming with new ideas. JKLU’s presence bears significance especially at a time when India holds the G20 presidency. The focus will be on the first draft of the core Recommendation and Policy Directives of the Policy Communique that has been released by G20’s Startup20 Engagement Group. So, it will be great learning experience for the varsity as well as a matter of pride for our students and faculty,” said Ms Nidhi Kachhawa, CEO, AIC-JKLU.

Such recommendations would be conveyed through a communique to the G20 India presidency and taken up during the G20 Summit 2023.
