And after extremely positive feedback from lakhs of readers, we are proud to present MSME Week, powered by Dell Small Business, an initiative by YourStory's SMBStory to celebrate the best home-grown brands across India. Held from June 20 to 27, 2019, MSME Week will be a week-long celebration of MSME entrepreneurs who are driving India’s economic growth through cloud technology, AI/ML, marketing, agriculture, and more. We will bring to you business journeys, Q&A sessions, Hero of the Week features, Facebook Live sessions, and panel discussions with MSME founders, corporates working with MSMEs, and other key stakeholders in the small business ecosystem.

 

The week will culminate in the grand finale on MSME Day on June 27, celebrated globally by the United Nations. On this MSME Day, we are hosting a unique and colourful pop-up bazaar at the YourStory headquarters in Indiranagar, Bengaluru. Small businesses can set up exhibits and stalls, and sell to a diverse mix of customers.

 

India will put the spotlight on companies that are doing India proud with their quality products. These are home-grown brands that have transformed themselves through business and technology innovations and are poised to become billion dollar companies.

With India’s recent 23-place jump on World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business’ ranking taking it from 142 to 77 position, all eyes are now on the Indian brands to take the lead. It is time for these Made in India companies to build for the world.

Besides an award ceremony celebrating the brands of India, this flagship event,  held on February 25 at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi, will be attended by Minister for MSME Giriraj Singh and other Cabinet ministers.

There will be an interesting lineup of industry experts, MSMEs, government representatives, and various stakeholders deliberate upon the challenges and issues of the sector.
