On 29th July 2023, a thought-provoking panel discussion titled “Effective Corporate & PMO Governance for Startups and MSMEs” was organized by PMOGA India Community Hub, partnered with IAPM (International Association of Project Managers) and MSME & Startups Forum- Bharat.

Esteemed panelists CS Rajiv Bajaj, Fusun Borluk, and Nivarti Jayaram graced the event, sharing their valuable experiences and insights into the significance of governance.

The discussion was skillfully moderated by Palash Gupta, a Co-founder of an AI company, actively involved in nurturing the Indian startup ecosystem as a volunteer for NASSCOM Deep Tech club. Palash Gupta also serves as a mentor for various startups emerging from prestigious institutions like IITs and IIMs.

During the discussion, Palash highlighted India’s remarkable entrepreneurial landscape, boasting over 63.4 million MSME units and more than 90,000 DPIT registered startups, making it the third-largest startup ecosystem in the world. These organizations collectively contribute to more than 30% of India’s GDP, and nearly 40% of exports originate from MSMEs and startups. The most significant impact lies in their role as employers, providing livelihoods to a staggering 11-12 crore Indians.
