Startup Village "I am extremely impressed with the role played by Startup Village in opening up the entrepreneurial avenues in the domain of telecom and Internet in Kerala," said Rajesh Kumar, Additional Secretary- Industries, Govt of Uttarakhand.

Kochi: Officials of the Uttarakhand government visited Startup Village to study the functioning of the incubator and to examine the possibility of replicating the model in the northern Indian state.

The officials included R Rajesh Kumar, Additional Secretary- Industries, Government of Uttarakhand , and S L Semwal, General Manager, SIDCUL.

"I am extremely impressed with the role played by Startup Village in opening up the vast entrepreneurial avenues in the domain of telecom and Internet for the young people of Kerala. We will certainly explore the possibility of establishing a similar facility in Uttarakhand,” Rajesh Kumar added.

At present, the Andhra Pradesh government has also established an incubator on the similar lines in Visakhapatnam.

Earlier, the officials of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh had visited to the Startup Village to learn more about the nuances of building a startup ecosystem.

“The Startup Village is a blueprint that other states want to replicate. We are at least seven years away from getting close to what we would term a world-class ecosystem,” Startup Village Chairman Sanjay Vijayakumar said.

Startup Village, which has helped incubate 530-plus nascent firms over a span of three years, was recently accorded the National Award for Technology Business Incubator in a huge recognition of its efforts to bring a sea change in Kerala. The incubator plans to launch a billion-dollar campus startup in India by 2022.
