“Any time is a good time to start a company.” 
– Ron Conway

Entrepreneurial spirit—the magical blend of creativity, innovation, resilience, and caffeine-induced optimism—is at an all-time high.

And the hundreds of entrepreneurs and startups sprouting across the nation are just a testament to this crazy force. It is to honor these architects of dreams and their realms that the Government of India proudly presents National Startup Day.

Celebrating National Startup Day

National Startup Day is marked by profound significance as it encourages the entrepreneurial spirit, promotes innovation, and celebrates the achievements of Indian startups.

It provides a platform for visionary startup entrepreneurs to discuss innovation for India’s youth in shaping the future and contributing to economic growth.

The initiative amplifies the transformative idea of entrepreneurship and acts as a catalyst to boost schemes like Make-in-India.
