New Delhi, Apr 15 (KNN) Pusa Krishi, Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), a premier institution fostering innovation in agriculture, has launched two flagship startup incubation programs – UPJA and ARISE, to support agri-preneurs and drive transformative solutions in the sector.

Launched on April 1, 2024, these initiatives provide comprehensive support, including funding, mentorship, and industry linkages, to nurture entrepreneurship and accelerate growth.

Successful applicants can receive grant-in-aid up to INR 25,00,000 to validate their technology, access mentorship, pilot opportunities, go-to-market support, and industry connections, propelling their ventures toward success.

On the other hand, ARISE caters to entrepreneurs with a legal entity and a viable business idea, as well as students possessing innovative concepts, even if their startup is not formally registered.

This program offers grant-in-aid up to INR 5,00,000, enabling participants to develop their ideas through mentoring, industry exposure, business and technology validation, market linkages, and a supportive ecosystem.
