Milagrow Business and Knowledge Solution’s Founder, Mr. Rajeev Karwal, says that “The SME sector, which contributes almost 40-50% of the economic activity has been an underserved, manipulated and much abused sector because of a variety of reasons. Because of misplaced regulatory and business compulsions, the sector never got its due. It is my dream that these hidden jewels of the Indian Industry shine brighter than ever now, especially when the Indian market place is growing. Milagrow as an organization is dedicated to the cause of MSMEs and the World SME Conference which will be an annual feature in the global MSME Ecosystem will play an important role in helping serve this cause better. What the World Economic Forum is to large businesses, The Milagrow World SME Conference will be to smaller businesses.”
