Though there have been localized initiatives to bring the sector under the purview of the organized sector but there has not been worthwhile progress. In such a scenario, the growth of even the most talented and hardworking entrepreneurs gets stagnated due to existing market forces having a bigger leverage on their end. Lack of adequate data is also a part of big concern for people and brands looking to venture in the industry. High Capital Investments are also a critical issue that stops eager entrepreneurs. The industry also has serious cashflow issues at times and lack of liquidity at crucial moments.

Prathamesh realized early on, that for the sector to reach its ultimate potential, it has to be more organized and have financial stability. To solve the issue, PPM United is in the process of developing an exchange that will be immensely beneficial for the industry. The platform will ensure to strengthen and promote innovative organized opportunities and solutions that can help newcomers and budding entrepreneurs to enter the sector and make the mark eventually contributing and strengthening India’s economy.
