The Startup India Initiative of the Government of India was launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister in January, 2016. The initiative envisions building a strong ecosystem for nurturing innovations and Entrepreneurship in the Country.
To take this Movement to the Next level Education Department, Government of Gujarat has launched Student Startup & Innovation Policy (SSIP). The Student Startup & Innovation Policy of Government of Gujarat aims to create an integrated, state-wide, university-based innovation ecosystem to support innovations and ideas of young students and provide a conducive environment for optimum harnessing of their creative pursuit.
To build Environment and to provide Support for the Startups and Innovations, the Education Department has organized various programs in the past to provide platform for exposure and hand holding and interaction through SSIP.
