Startup India Initiative
cross-red-lines
Startup India is a flagship initiative of the Government of India to create the Creators. The program aims to build a strong ecosystem to drive innovation and startups in the country to drive sustainable economic growth and create job opportunities on a large scale. The government, through this initiative aims to empower startups to thrive through innovation and design.

Several programs have been undertaken since the launch of the initiative on 16th of January, 2016 by Hon’ble Prime Minister, to contribute to his vision of transforming India into a country of job creators instead of job seekers. These programs have catalyzed the startup culture, with startups getting recognized through the Startup India initiative and many entrepreneurs availing the benefits of starting their own business in India.

Through the Promoting and Accelerating Young and Aspiring Innovators and Startups (PRAYAS) program, Entrepreneurs-In-Residence (EIR) provides money-related help for turning ideas into prototypes and early-stage Seed support to incubated enterprises.

This establishes Centers of Excellence (CoE) in incubation and provides mentorship and help in investment readiness through Accelerators.

The two main programs are the Biotechnology Ignition Grant (BIG) schemes and the BioNEST Program (Bio incubators Nurturing Entrepreneurship for Scaling Technologies).

The Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana- Remunerative Approaches for Agriculture and Allied Sector Rejuvenation (RKVY-RAFTAAR) scheme has launched the “Innovation and Agri-entrepreneur Development” program to encourage innovation and agri– business. This is done by providing financial support and taking care of the ecosystem.

Agro-processing, Food Technology & Value Addition, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Block Chain Technology (BCT), precision farming and digital agriculture, and Block Chain technology, are just a few of the projects that startups participating in the program are working on.
