India is the 3rd largest startup ecosystem globally, with more than 75,000 startups. The Startup ecosystem is now witnessing an increase in the number of startups growing into Unicorns. Startup Conclave would provide a peek into India’s innovation ecosystem. The event would offer the opportunity to learn, understand and engage with ‘science-led’ Startups and supporting enablers, especially the Incubation centres.
The conclave would have a special focus on the Biotech Innovation ecosystem that is championed by DBT/BIRAC. The largest funding schemes in the biotech sector, namely, Biotech Ignition Grant (BIG) for entrepreneurs & startups, and the BioNEST scheme for bio-incubation centres, have completed ten years and made an immense contribution. The conclave will showcase its outcome. Startup Conclave would comprise four major elements, (i) Exhibition of innovative products and technologies by Startups in various fields, (ii) Exhibits by Incubators offering enabling services and shared infrastructure, (iii) Focused discussions on challenges and opportunities for Startups and (iv) how to avail the enabling opportunities under Startup India.
