What is collaborative growth? When businessmen and women rise up to become leaders, visionaries and ambassadors for growth. This is precisely what the Vision Group meeting of industry leaders and Karnataka government cabinet ministers on the 20th August, 2016 at the Vidhana Soudha flagged off.

Minister for Light and Medium Industries and Infrastructure Development, RV Deshpande began the Vision group meeting, with a much needed inventive approach, exhorting industry leaders to emerge as the ambassadors of growth in Karnataka.

For ages, there has been a social binary of the government and the industry, and the conventional belief is the two may come together on occasions, but “never the twain shall meet”. However RV Deshpande signaled a new vision for future action, where the industry can work with a broader vision, together.
