Imphal Angels on Wednesday hosted the first ever North East startup summit 2019, the biggest startup event in the North east at Hotel Imphal where various prominent entrepreneurs, investors and other ecosystem partners gathered. JCRE Skill Solutions was the title sponsor of the event.

Stating that Pig breeding business is a lucrative business which can change one's life with the demand of pork being high in the north east, he said north east a best market for pig and the present pork productivity cannot meet the North east demand. Narrating about his visit to a piggery farm in Karnataka, he said he found 22 people from North east working in a piggery farm for a small salary. "At a time when the North east is a best market for pork, Why the north east people should go a long way for earning rather than initiating the same business here", he questioned.

Pointing out that Banks were reluctant to provide him even 10 lakhs worth loan at the initial stage of his business, he said Banks have approached him to take loan worth crores after witnessing his successful business venture. He said he left Bank job to start his piggery farm. Agriculture is a sector where a lone farmer cannot create a business ecosystem without collaborative effort, he added.
