Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) under the ministry of ITE&C launched Startup India Telangana Yatra in collaboration with Invest India on 15th September 2018.It was launched with an attempt to promote entrepreneurship in Tier II and III cities of the state. The Yatra took place in 12 districts between 15th September and 5th October and spread awareness about the State Innovation Policy and the initiatives taken by the state.
The yatra witnessed a total of 624 ideas pitched, of which 201 ideas were selected for the finals. The bootcamp held at Jyotishmathi Institute of Technology, Karimnagar, witnessed the highest number of ideas pitched till date in the Startup India Yatra across the country. This only strengthens our belief that we need to work in bringing the existing talent to the forefront. The future programs by the State Innovation Cell under the Intinta Innovator campaign would be concentrated on doing the same.
During the tour in bootcamps, budding entrepreneurs got a chance to be mentored by successful entrepreneurs and active players of the startup ecosystem and also to pitch their idea. The selected entrepreneurs got incubated under the acceleration programme and are now working towards improving their ideas and prototypes.
