Prime Minister has unveiled a slew of measures to help start-ups in the country, even while mocking the tendency over the last 60 years for governments to make things difficult for business by seeking to do things for them, the irony obliterated by his effusive enthusiasm. The prime minister did well to disabuse the notion that start-ups are all about information technology and millions of dollars of investment. Any new venture that will create employment and meet some unmet demand of society or meet a met demand more efficiently is a start-up, he pointed out. This is most welcome and a needed corrective to a tendency to conflate start-ups with some form of e-commerce.
