About Us


Startup India is a flagship initiative of the Government of India, intended to build a strong eco-system for nurturing innovation and Startups in the country that will drive sustainable economic growth and generate large scale employment opportunities. The Government through this initiative aims to empower Startups to grow through innovation and design.

Startups in India need to be recognized by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion ("DIPP") to avail the benefits under the Action Plan. The applications for such a recognition have to be accompanied by a letter of recommendation/support/funding/endorsement from an Incubator.

As per Uttar Pradesh Start UP Policy, 2020 "Incubators are the most critical component of startup ecosystem. They are established by private/government host institutes to support startup companies during their early stages of life to develop a scalable business model. They provide startups with various resources such as physical office space, coaching, mentoring, legal & corporate services and providing network connections to grow their business. An incubator shall also mean a Technology Business Incubator recognized by Government of India. In the context of this policy, incubators will serve as first point of contact for startups to get their business plans evaluated for availing any incentives as per the Startup Policy. Startups shall be able to apply for financial incentives to Nodal Agency only after approval by the incubators."


An incubator must fall in one of the following categories to be authorized:

  • Incubator established in a post-graduate college in India;
  • Incubator funded by Government of India or any State Government as part of any specified scheme to promote innovation;
  • Incubator recognized by Government of India by virtue of an application to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion ("DIPP").
