Shri. Kalraj Mishra

It would not be an exaggeration, if I could go on record to say, that the initiatives organized by India SME Forum, are a bold step to encourage and motivate entrepreneurs all over India . For this, I appreciate and congratulate them for their efforts.

Shri. Suresh Prabhu

Most new business ideas that are generated are born within these small businesses. It’s the MSMEs of our country who need protection as they are too small to succeed and in turn decrease the rate of failures. Since this sector is in the hands of a Senior Minister who will bring prosperity to the country and economy, I think our MSMEs are in safe hands and I wish for accelerated growth in the years to come. The SME Forum will serve as the hub of ideas, innovation and it’s SMEs and the start ups that will actually bring a true Entrepreneurial revolution in India

Shri. Narendra Singh Tomar

Hon’ble Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare & President ICAR
While I have this opportunity to be present amongst all of you, I can say this very confidently that if there is any registered organization which has truly recognised & utlilized the enormity of prevalence, that exists in the MSME sector of our country, then it is definitely the INDIA SME FORUM. My heartiest congratulations !
