Share post:


To take the message of the G20 New Delhi Declaration, and in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Janbhagidari’ and inclusive, sustainable and green growth, SIDBI is supporting a unique entrepreneurship train journey across India.

The mission of the Jagriti G20 Startup20 Yatra 2023 is to take the Delhi Declaration across the nation before passing on the baton to Brazil, which will be assuming the G20 Presidency at the end of November. The key themes of the Yatra are inclusive entrepreneurship and women-led development, while focusing on sustainability, digital transformation, enabling enterprise ecosystems, and cross-border collaboration.

These key tenets of the G20 Delhi Declaration will be amplified through few mega events as part of the Jagriti G20 Startup20 Yatra. These mega events are planned in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Varanasi, Deoria, Delhi (two events), and Gandhinagar.

This unique train will travel 8000 km across India, and commenced from Mumbai on October 28, 2023, and will conclude in Mumbai on November 10, 2023. 450 participants, including 70 participants from G20 nations will be part of this entrepreneurship train journey. Through this Yatra, participants will gain exposure to the Indian and international enterprise and innovation ecosystem, acquiring insights into inclusive practices and global networking.

Sivasubramanian Ramann, CMD, SIDBI said ‘This Yatra is being supported by SIDBI as a “green partner”, being the Development Financial Institution (DFI) of the country serving the MSME Sector, which believes in transforming the nation through entrepreneurship and amplifying sustainability. The objective of supporting this train journey by SIDBI is to promote “green culture” and “sustainability” among youths and startups, by introducing various themes among G20 participants.’

SIDBI has been attending to the ‘green enterprise’ mandate with a theme that ‘financing the green cannot happen unless we green the financing’.

As per SIDBI, adopting a ‘bottom-up’ approach is of essence and ‘greening the entire enterprise value chain’ demands engagements on demand and supply side as also financial and non-financial services. SIDBI’s missions are aligned to the national priorities wherein gearing up the MSME ecosystem to be responsive and sustainable is an important constituent.
