Are you that one person who always find solutions to problems? That one person who is filled with ideas that can better the world? That one person who realised that there is a practical world outside the four walls of your classrooms?
If you answered yes to the questions above, you could be the winners Prime Minister Narendra Modi is searching for. And if you are one of those entrepreneurs the Indian government is awaiting, you would remember the Independence day of 2015 when PM Modi pushed the nation to ‘Startup’ and ‘Standup’.
PM Modi, while announcing the action plan for his ambitious ‘Startup India, Standup India’ scheme, said, “I hope that this scheme will give the strength and inspiration to the talented young generation of India to do something new for India and for humanity.”
Now, ahead of PM Modi’s two-day-historic visit to Israel starting July 4 to commemorate 25 years of establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, a contest is being organised by NITI Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission in partnership with Startup India and Invest India.
The contest named The Startup Contest aims at providing an opportunity to all those aspirational entrepreneurs to showcase their exceptional work. All the contestants will get a chance to present their ideas and the winners will get an opportunity to engage and network with the best in the startup and innovation ecosystem from India and Israel.
Interested participants can register themselves online till June 13, 2017. You can submit your startup entries on this website.
This is your chance to standup for the ideas you believe in, engage with the best of entrepreneurs, and realise that dream of building something of your own.
