Unleashing the Future of the Northeast start-up world

Northeast India doesn’t make it to the headlines very often about start-ups. While there are over 900 startups from Northeast India, it is merely a drop in the ocean. With a population of over 45 million and a literacy rate that exceeds the national average, India’s Northeast region holds immense growth potential. The culturally rich region is a fertile ground for entrepreneurship to grow and thrive. But something is missing. We cannot find the incubation support to provide the right guidance to startups in Northeast Region. That is why skill club India is trying to curate and create a good eco system for the northeast start up world in collaboration with many investors house and expertise from this domain.
