The States' Startup Ranking is a periodic capacity building exercise created and released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) to evaluate all of India's States and Union Territories (UT) on their efforts to build an ecosystem conducive to startup growth. States' Startup Ranking was launched in February 2018 to achieve the vision of building a robust startup ecosystem in the country. It aims to evaluate the Indian startup landscape through the eyes of state / UT policy intervention and identify practices that accelerate ecosystem growth and development.
The States’ Startup Ranking Exercise has led each state / UT to have dedicated startup policies and through its annual rankings, it is able to track the evolution of these policies and the overall efforts of states / UTs in ecosystem building. The States Startup Ranking Framework accelerates efforts put in by the Center and States / UTs to enliven the entrepreneurial mindset across the length and breadth of the country. Capacity Building Measures have also been undertaken by the Startup India Team across States and Union Territories for ecosystem enablers and innovators in promoting economic growth by upholding the spirit of cooperative federalism.+ Show More - Show Less
