New Delhi, April 28: Union Minister of State, Dr Jitendra Singh Thursdaysaid that the industry stake is important for "sustainable" StartUps.
A party statement said that while, addressing the ‘AzadiKaAmritMahotsav,’Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) event organised by the NITI Aayog here titled, “Celebrating 75 years of India’s Innovation Journey,” Dr Jitendra Singh said, Atal Innovation Mission has ignited the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in our schools and colleges thus motivating them to become confident self-employers. 
He informed that the Mission through its various programmes has been supporting more than 2,200 StartUps in all the major fields of innovation like Health Tech, Fin-tech, Agri-tech, AI-ML, IOT and other sectors of public importance.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, our greatest asset is Prime Minister NarendraModi, who not only has a natural predilection for science but is also forthcoming in supporting and promoting science and technology based initiatives and projects. He said, India's scientific prowess is going to have a major role in the making of “AtmaNirbhar Bharat ''.
Dr Jitendra Singh said that from inculcating innovative mind-set in school children through Atal Tinkering Labs to supporting StartUps and innovators through its programmes like Atal Incubation Centres, Atal Community Innovation Centres and ANIC challenges, AIM has been transforming innovation and entrepreneurship landscape in the country holistically and comprehensively. He said, Atal Innovation Mission, which recently completed its 6th year since inception, is complementary to the government’s vision of “SabkaSaath, SabkaVikaas, SabkaPrayas”.
Apart from referring to the mentorship programme of DST, Dr Jitendra Singh said, Atal Tinkering Lab with the mantra of “Catch them Young” needs further development and widespread reach to capture grassroots innovation. 
He said, with a vision to ‘Cultivate one Million Children in India as Neoteric Innovators’, AIM is establishing Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools across India. The objective of this scheme is to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds; and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc.
‘AzadiKaAmritMahotsav’ is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements.
