This journey of 48 years was started in the year 1974 by the Government of Uttar Pradesh. It was restructured again in 1976 by the country’s apex financial institutions, including the Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI), the Industrial Finance Corporation of India (IFCI), and the Industrial Credit & Investment Corporation of India (ICICI). This 48 years journey has witnessed many dented years, but it’s journey ascended in 2012 when it was joined by seasoned professionals and since then there was no looking back.
A major brand transformation happened when “UPICO” changed to “UPICON” and the logo got the image of Eklavya: which gave UPICON a new edge of – “Not where you start but where you reach”, which comes with determination and dedication. Ever since then, UPICON has been instrumental in giving consultancy to big, medium, and small industries, building microentrepreneurial ecosystem, skills and training, banking inclusion, UNESCO projects, social welfare projects, women empowerment, safety and audit etc.
