Pravasi Investors to Embrace Indian Manufacturing MSMEs to Mitigate Growth Challenges
NOIDA, UP, India: As per the Business confidence study conducted nationwide by MSME-focused digital lender Neo-Growth Credit Findings, an overwhelming majority of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in India expect their profits to increase in 2023. The Indian MSME sector is a nursery of entrepreneurship driven by individual creativity and innovation.
Prime Minister of India recently launched growth accelerator schemes like ‘Raising and Accelerating MSME Performance’ (RAMP), Capacity Building of First-Time Exporters (CBFTE) and new features of the Prime Minister Employment Generating Programme (PMEGP), giving impetus to growth.
Following the adoption of the revised definition of MSMEs based on investments in plant and machinery and equipment and turnover, a whopping 10 million online registrations have been received on the Udyam Registration Portal towards ‘Ease of Doing Business’.
Recently concluded India International Trade Fair 22 witnessed the encouraging participation of 73% of women entrepreneurs. An all-inclusive MSME Champions Scheme formulated with categories, namely MSME Sustainable, MSME Competitive, and MSME Innovative, is setting aspirations of India’s Small and Medium Businesses to be on a global roadmap.
“Handholding MSME entrepreneurs to leverage their expertise and translate the same to a wider audience empowers the business to leverage their true potential,” says Rachana Chowdhary, CEO of MVW-MSME Development Centre, the Editor & Publisher at IndiaTechnologyNews.in, an MSME focused Magazine.
In addition to the traditional financing schemes, an increasing community of family offices is looking to extend their support to MSMEs with promising solutions.
