In early stage it’s hard to avail various supports for innovators among the key needs like

  1. IP Support
  2. Operation like legal/Accounting
  3. Product Design support
  4. Product-market linkages with corporates, large industries and others
  5. Access/linkages to capital/funds/Grants through single window facility
  6. Access/interaction with Government and public sector

This takes huge energy and resource from the early entrepreneur. SSIP is going to create a single point facility center for these key and allied auxiliary needs through its flagship program Start-up Samarth. We need to empanel various individuals, organizations, facilitators and support base along with their prescribed fee and link them with SSIP/I hub from where innovators/start-ups can access them with ease with single window facility. This will reduce the burden from founder/innovator and they can better focus on their work, save time and energy

At I-Hub, a single point Common Facilitation center will work under the initiative of SSIP Samarth which will effectively try to fill the above mentioned gap in the ecosystem. I-Hub and SSIP cell at Education department will reach out to potential pro-bono, at cost, subsidized service providers and others and link at them at the supply side. Innovators and Start-ups will be avail them and pick as per their convenience which will reduce their transaction cost. I Hub will also put full time competent persons responsible for facilitating these through SSIP Samarth initiative. Potential beneficiaries can register on web and mention their needs and based on that linkages can be built.
