By this, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) have started creating their digital presence and promoting their offerings on the internet.

Skill India initiative aims to train over 500 million people in different skills on areas where formal certification is lacking especially in the un-organized sector. The outcome of Skill India is to train people such that they get employment not only in India, but also meet the demand of the world.

This initiative of setting up multiple IITs and IIMs in India has raised opportunities in developing specialized skill in technical and management. This gives opportunities for an investor to find not only the generic skill to execute their business, but also specialized skill to manage them. This helps to eliminate the cultural and managerial differences between the management and the labour workforce and hence get issues resolved faster. Execute India
