Kerala startups have great scope to develop e-vehicles: Union Minister Chandrasekhar – Devdiscourse

Kerala, with its core ability in electronics system design, must focus more on that field alongside electric vehicles, Union Minister of State Rajeev Chandrasekhar said on Friday.
Startups in the country must make use of global opportunities in the post-Covid era by tapping the potential in electronics, Chandrasekhar said after a visit to the Integrated Startup Complex (ISC) near here.
”The State has proved its high quality in electronics; only that the startups have to scale up marketing,” the Minister, who holds the portfolios of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said. He said this after a two-hour round of the Technology Innovation Zone of the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) at the ISC in Kalamassery here.
Given that Indian startups have risen largely in the domain of software, the Maker Village at ISC can make valuable contributions as an electronics hardware innovator under the Kerala Startup Mission, Chandrasekhar said in a press release. ”Innovators must be encouraged to design high-quality electronic systems by using indigenously developed chips. For this, the government is keen to provide financial aid,” he said.
Also, the Minister visited the Maker Village in the Technology Innovation Zone.
Along with delegates comprising scientists and other senior officials of MeitY, the Minister interacted with the incubated startups under KSUM and other stakeholders in the startup ecosystem.
Chandrasekhar noted that electric vehicles provide entrepreneurs immense scope for development, as this facility is yet to strengthen in the country. Pointing out that electric vehicles rely heavily on electronics, he called upon entrepreneurs in the country to explore the product’s international market when the domain is in its infancy in most other countries of the world.
”Entrepreneurs should not get stuck in just ideas and models. They must equally concentrate on how to sell their products,” the Minister said. The Minister visited the Internet of Things Excellence Centre jointly hosted by KSUM, Maker Village, Digital University of Kerala and Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET). He interacted with startup entrepreneurs, too, and took a round of KSUM’s SuperFablab besides the stalls that exhibited the products of firms incubating under KSUM.
KSUM Chief Executive Officer John M Thomas, Maker Village CEO Nizamuddin Mohammed, Kerala Digital University Vice-Chancellor Dr Saji Gopinath, IIITK-M Chairman Madhavan Nambiar, KSITIL Managing Director Santhosh Babu and former Telecom Secretary Smt Aruna Sundarrajan interacted with the Minister.
