SRINAGAR: An innovative notebook, C–Copy, made by a Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI)-sponsored entrepreneur Mudassar Iqbal Khan was unveiled on Tuesday.
In a handout issued here, JKEDI said the notebook was unveiled by Minister for Education Naeem Akhter at an event organised by the institute “as a part of its endeavour to provide non-financial services along with monetary benefits to its sponsored entrepreneurs”.
Naeem, who was the chief guest on the occasion, applauded the entrepreneur and the institute for their efforts.
“Youth should take lessons from our forefathers, who were self-sufficient despite being less literate,” he said. “In a disabled system like ours, I am glad the entrepreneur has been able to perform.”
Director JKEDI, Dr M I Parray, sought the minister’s support for maximising the institute’s reach in the state.
He called for “stronger strategic partnership of JKEDI with the education department”.
The entrepreneur thanked JKEDI for its support in realising his idea and appealed the state government “to draft an entrepreneur-friendly policy, particularly for post production help like marketing and branding”.
