Through the support of Student Startup and Innovation Policy (SSIP) over 3000 teams have been supported for developing their Prototypes in the last three year. It’s heartening to note that few 100s of them are successfully converting their prototypes into early-stage ventures. The journey for the above requires many skills and tools using which innovators can successfully traverse their journey from mind to market. This flagship efforts of i-Hub “Startup Runway” brings together the best domain experts from across ecosystems to guide these young innovators and start-ups for the above in a comprehensive and contextual manner. I strongly believe that the programme will give hands-on insights on how to move from an idea to exit and start-ups will immensely gain from it.
