In order to avail the benefits announced in the Startup India Action Plan, an entity would be required to be recognized as a Startup. To this effect, it would be required to submit an application along with a relevant recommendation/ support/ endorsement letter. One of the options available to the registering entities is to obtain a recommendation letter from any incubator recognized by Government of India.
Incubator Recognition is provided under the Startup India initiative to recognize and identify incubators that are eligible to provide the said recommendation letter. This would enable Startups to access a wider base of incubator(s) to obtain the same.
