Dr. Sameer Siddiqui Partners with Shahid Ansari to Foster Entrepreneurial Growth in J&K

In a significant move to address unemployment concerns, particularly in South Kashmir, Dr. Sameer Siddiqui joined forces with Shahid Ansari, founder of Startup Kashmir.

Dr. Siddiqui, a renowned religious and spiritual leader and the Patron of Khanqah-e-Hydari in Aishmuqam, commands a significant following in the valley, particularly among the youth. He will leverage his influence and play a crucial role in advocating self-employment and entrepreneurship among the youth, linking them with Startup Kashmir—an initiative aimed at building and nurturing an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Jammu & Kashmir.

Khanqah-e-Hydari stands as a symbol of spiritual enlightenment and communal harmony, embodying the timeless teachings of Prophet Muhammad pbuh to foster unity, peace and holistic growth.

Startup Kashmir plans to conduct workshops and boot camps across the region to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for developing new business ideas and launching startups. The initiative seeks to identify talent, create opportunities, and combat unemployment by integrating rural youth into Startup Kashmir programs.
