PR Minister inaugurates country’s first media incubation center
Bhopal. Minister of Public Relations, Water Resources and Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Narottam Mishra inaugurated the Media Incubation Centre, set up in collaboration with the NITI Aayog at Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication, Bhopal. He said that this is the country's first media incubation centre. Media entrepreneurship training will be given in this centre and entrepreneurs will also be mentored from time to time.
It may be noted here that all media institutes are providing training on content creation and media management. But the demand for independent subject-matter experts in the actual media scenario is increasing. Hence there is a need to give training in entrepreneurship development. Keeping this need in mind, Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication, decided to establish the Atal Incubation Centre with the help of NITI Aayog. This centre will train and guide media entrepreneurs. The centre will be operated through Samvad Bharti Sanstha.
Director, Public Relations Ashutosh Pratap Singh, Vice–Chancellor of the University Jagdish Upasne, Rector Lajpat Ahuja and Registrar Professor Sanjay Dwivedi and other officials were present on the occasion.
