The Tamil Nadu government is planning to create a venture capital fund with the support of private industries and foreign investors for the Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) in the state, according to a news report by Business Standard.

State finance minister, O Panneerselvam, said that the EDI will also create a corpus fund by pooling resources from financial institutions, and the state and Central governments. The EDI will be revamped to motivate and train young entrepreneurs, particularly first generation entrepreneurs, he added.

Speaking about sectoral development in the state, Panneerselvam said the state had set a target of developing 50 clusters in the 11th Five Year Plan. The state’s Small Industries Development Corporation Ltd (Sidco) has identified 2,256 acres in 25 locations to promote industrial clusters for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) in the coming years.
