Madhya Pradesh to begin its Startup India Yatra on July 16
New Delhi, July 12 (KNN) After successful completion of Startup India Yatra in states like Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha and Uttarakhand, the Madhya Pradesh leg of the government’s Startup India Yatra will begin on July 16, 2018.
Aiming to spread awareness about startup India and Madhya Pradesh Startup Policy, the Startup India Yatra van will begin its journey from the state capital Bhopal, covering 10 districts and 15 institutions over a span of 30 days.
The van is expected to travel to nearly 25 colleges, and one-day boot camps will be conducted in all the destinations.
The vehicle, with experts on board, will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurial talents to pitch an idea and get incubated, scaling it from idea to enterprise.
Startup India Yatra aims to promote entrepreneurship at grass root level in the smaller towns of India by providing a platform for budding entrepreneurs to realize their Startup dream.
Startup India Yatra’s technology partner, Shrofile, a video-based personality evaluation platform headquartered in Gurugram, will record ideas of entrepreneurs from Madhya Pradesh via the Startup India mobile van.
Entrepreneurs will record their ideas on the Startup India App screens, which will be shared with the Startup India team for evaluation and selection.
Launched in 2016, Startup India organizes the Startup India Yatra in one state every month to promote job creation in tier 2 and tier 3 towns and cities.
The Yatra conducts boot camps where students are taught lessons in business planning followed by a pitch fest where ideas are invited.
It intends to build a robust startup ecosystem in the country for nurturing innovation and providing opportunities to budding entrepreneurs.
In tandem with this mission, the program has been able to gather registration of 10,999 startups, generating employment to 1,09,869 people.
In this direction, the States Startup Ranking Framework was launched by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) in February 2018, with the aim to foster competitiveness and to propel the states and union territories to work proactively towards promotion of their startup eco-systems.
Startup India works with various Ministries of the Government of India and corporate to promote incubation and accelerator programs which lead to creation of more startups.
