December 23, 2020: KIRAN, an ICAR initiative to empower agricultural knowledge and innovation in North East a step taken further led to the inauguration of the agri –start up “D. Sten Food Porocessing Unit” at Umroi, Nongrah in Meghalaya. Flo Oberhofer Program head of Prime Hub said that Kong D. Sten is one among the top fifty entrepreneurs from the state as per the research by the organization.



The food processing unit was inaugurated by HOD Social Science ICAR, Umiam Dr .N Uttam Singh in the presence of village headman and other officials today (22.12.2020). Addressing the gathering he said that major reason why start up fail is due to  lack of capital or funding, inefficient management,  lack of infrastructure and unsuccessful marketing strategies, if these four major concerns are taken care of then the start-ups will flourish. The region has potential to self sufficient in all aspects.



Speaking on the occasion he further said that, the initiative was a step to encourage entrepreneurs to be self reliant.



The agri- start- up is unique as it has used locally available resources to establish the unit. Though the initiative is set in low scale but with correct measures and efforts from the state and line department it will achieve great heights.
