3 Meghalaya entrepreneurs emerge winners at NERES Summit

Three entrepreneurs identified through Meghalaya Chief Minister’s E-Champion Challenge Cohort 1 have emerged as winners in NERES 1.0, an entrepreneurship summit aimed at offering a platform to promising start-ups and aspiring entrepreneurs across the North Eastern Region (NER). Babatdor Dkhar, Baldilla T. Sangma and Rejaul Gabil Momin are among the winning entrepreneurs shortlisted after the final round of the NERES 1.0.  The three are among the best business ideas who will receive a grant of Rs. 5 lakhs under the sponsorship of NEC for the year 2020.

An elated Babatdor Dkhar while thanking his mentors said, “Winning NERES 1.0 along with the Chief Minister’s E Champion Challenge Cohort 1, while also being selected for the IIM Shillong Incubation Center have been important events. I feel extremely fortunate because of the many opportunities that are opening up. I look at each as vital stepping stones in my entrepreneurial journey. PRIME Hub and the resources that it offers is a platform that I hope many entrepreneurs in our state will have access to. A boot camp that PRIME Hub organized in February 2020 was instrumental in helping me formulate a more well-rounded approach to the business development of my startup Ka Ktien Media”.
