Adding to that, Mohammed Saleem, Chief Executive Officer, Trescon, said, “WSE is designed, keeping in mind the Government’s vision of transitioning India from a nation of job seekers to employment generators. Our endeavour is to help create a robust startup ecosystem in the country as envisaged by the Government and we are proud to receive the support of ‘Nasscom 10,000 startups’ as we share a similar vision for this country.”
