Kolkata, Aug 16 (IANS) Having made some progress in the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector, the West Bengal government has now trained officials specifically to hit the streets to scout for entrepreneurial talent. Over 400 officials, trained by the premier Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIM-C), would move from block to block in the districts organising clinics to inform, assist and motivate prospective entrepreneurs to start their own business, an official said. The target is to create 4,000-5,000 new entrepreneurs besides assisting the existing ones. Under the tie-up, IIM-C has been providing technical assistance to the MSME department for developing entrepreneurship and collaborating to organise ‘Synergy’ – a business conclave aimed at providing support and personalised guidance to entrepreneurs.
