StartUp Conclave

India is the 3 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,

  • Exhibition of innovative products and technologies by Startups in various fields
  • Exhibits by Incubators offering enabling services and shared infrastructure
  • Focused discussions on challenges and opportunities for Startups and
  • How to avail the enabling opportunities under Startup India.
