Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) under the ministry of ITE&C is launching
Startup India TelanganaYatra in collaboration with Invest India and Startup India
under the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion on 15 th September 2018.
In this regard, a formal launch and flag-off of the Startup Yatra Van by Mr KT
Rama Rao, Hon'ble Minister for ITE&C is planned at 10:00AM on 15th
September at Hotel Haritha Plaza.
Startup Yatra is an attempt to promote entrepreneurship in Tier II and III cities of
the state. The Yatra will happen in 12 districts between 15 th September and 5 th
October and will spread awareness about the State Innovation Policy and the
initiatives taken by the state. During the tour in bootcamps, budding
entrepreneurs will get a chance to be mentored by successful entrepreneurs and
active players of the startup ecosystem and also can pitch their idea and, if
selected, entrepreneurs will get incubated under the acceleration programme and
give wings to their entrepreneurial dream. There is no limitation on a person
being from a particular district to attend the bootcamp in their home district only,
bootcamps can be attended in any district at any college. Also, there is no age
limit for the people to take part in the Yatra.
To ensure the Yatra benefits every individual across the state, a ‘Startup India
Mobile Van’ will stop at thirteen destinations between September 14 and
September 29. It will spread awareness about the initiatives taken by the

government to promote entrepreneurship in Telangana. The vehicle will have
experts on board who will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurial talents to
pitch an idea. It aims to scout grass root level entrepreneurs in the smaller towns
of India, providing a platform for budding entrepreneurs.
Active ecosystem players are invited to be a part of the Jury to each and every
bootcamp to inspire students from tier ⅔ cities to become innovators and
entrepreneurs. Also, there are exhibits by Rural Innovators in all the bootcamp
locations in collaboration with PalleSrujana, Honey Bee Network under National
Innovation Foundation (NIF), This will inspire students to understand the
hardship and challenges faced by rural population and will thus encourage
students to innovate for the benefit of rural community.
Through this Yatra we aim to make entrepreneurship and innovation as a
colloquial term in Telangana where everyone knows about it and speaks about it.
TSIC takes this opportunity to invite people with ideas to come and join us in the
bootcmaps at Startup India TelanganaYatra
