India is home to one of the most vibrant startup ecosystems with close to 8000 tech startups, making it the 2nd largest startup ecosystem in the world. Hence, innovation and entrepreneurship is the emerging focus area that is being aggressively promoted to give fillip to the Indian economy. Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India is leading and facilitating a gamut of Innovation and IPR related activities across the country towards expansion of this ecosystem. In order to facilitate MeitY's vision of promoting technology innovation, start-ups and creation of Intellectual Properties, a nodal entity called ‘MeitY Start-up Hub' (MSH) has been setup under its aegis. MSH will act as a national coordination, facilitation and monitoring centre that will integrate all the incubation centres, start-ups and innovation related activities of MeitY.
