PRIME

PRIME is an acronym for Promotion and Incubation of Market Driven Enterprises. PRIME was inaugurated by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Meghalaya Conrad K. Sangma in January 2020. The program envisions making entrepreneurship a preferred career choice for the youth and people of the State through creation of a dynamic and collaborative ecosystem that enables easy availability of credit, relevant technology, skilling and mentoring support and access to high leverage markets. Through PRIME, the youth is encouraged to explore alternative methods of employment and become job creators rather than mere job seekers

“I am very confident that our strategy will find resonance and support from the citizens of Meghalaya. To support the strategy’s implementation, we will follow a collaborative approach between the state government and its different departments along with private sector organizations.”

Conrad Sangma, Chief Minister of Meghalaya
