The programme is aimed at promoting and providing a global exposure to mature Startups from India and the UK to help them begin their journey of globalisation. It also aims to help Startup ecosystem stakeholders from India & the UK to interact and learn from each other.
This initiative is fully aligned with and supports the Start-up India program, which is a flagship initiative of the Government of India; intended to build a strong eco-system for nurturing innovation and Startups in the country. This is aimed at driving sustainable economic growth and generate large scale employment opportunities. The Government through this initiative aims to empower Startups to grow through innovation and design. To meet the objectives of this initiative, Government of India announced Startup India Action Plan that addresses all aspects of the Startup ecosystem.
