It’s an absolute honour to now have Mumbai’s iconic Raj Bhavan as one of our subscribers. As winners of Maharashtra Startup Week, we have a mandate to bring more art into government offices and estates as well as public spaces and Raj Bhavan proved to be the perfect venue to kickstart this project.

“When we conceptualised Maharashtra Startup Week, the idea was to select and promote a group of startups that had the potential to bring about transformational change with their products and services throughout the state and also grow in the process. It gives me great joy and satisfaction to see Floating Canvas Company, one of our winners, making big strides in that direction. We wish them all the best and hope to see more such work borne out of our association.”
- Aseem Gupta, Secretary, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Govt. of Maharashtra.
