Other than this a start up can purchase raw materials at a lower price and the government will also exempt small and medium business from specific taxes along with proving them space a t a lower cost than the market cost. There are specific funds earmarked by the government for the fields of education and chemical so that people take more initiative to open a start up that concern itself with this field.
