Innovation, Incubation & Startup Cell

Start-up is an entity that develops a business model based on either product innovation or service innovation and makes it scalable, replicable and self-reliant. Innovations have a strong linkage to the world of startup. Solutions to unsolved problems form the basis for thinkers to innovate.

On January 16, 2016, the Honorable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi launched the ‘Start-up India’ program.
