About Udyami Bharat

"'Udyami Bharat' is reflective of the continuous commitment of the government, right from day one, to work towards empowerment of MSMEs."

- Narendra Modi

In June 2023, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took an active role in fostering India's entrepreneurial ethos by participating in the 'Udyami Bharat' program.

The primary goal of 'Udyami Bharat' is to cultivate innovation, promote entrepreneurship, facilitate capacity building, and empower women to make meaningful contributions to the MSME sector. Aligned with the government’s boost to entrepreneurship, the theme for this year’s summit will focus on the key pillars of ‘Udyami Bharat’ that can enable ‘Prosperity through Entrepreneurship.’

Pillars of Udyami Bharat

'Udyami Bharat' mirrors the unwavering dedication of the government, from its inception, to empower MSMEs and foster their growth. By facilitating skill development, fostering technology adoption, and encouraging collaboration, ‘Udyami Bharat’ endeavors to position MSMEs as engines of inclusive economic development and job creation.
