Gujarat has forever been the land of brave entrepreneurs and industry friendly policies have led to the proliferation of many successful micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
Fifty-two-year-old Kishore Patel of Ankleshwar based printing and packaging firm Techno Packaging credits his success to the business friendly and technology savvy nature of his state Gujarat. Patel started out from a small godown (warehouse) in 1998 supplying cartons and labeling equipment to local industries in the vicinity. His familiarity with computers and an inherent urge to expand the business matched other similar entrepreneurs around and he quickly graduated to more sophisticated offset colour printing, scanning and visualisers. As businesses grew big feeding on the state’s industry friendly policies, so did Patel.
