An Exhaustive List Of India's 200+ Startup Incubators

Startup incubators are essentially organisations that promote the speedy

growth and success of startups, MSMEs, and early stage companies. They
provide a foray of services including capital, connections with angel
investors, State Governments, economic coalitions, and others.
With India being in the top five startup nations in the world and the
Government pushing all the right buttons towards fostering an ecosystem
that boosts entrepreneurial growth, the organisations meant to support
startups, called incubators occupy a central space in todays digital economy.
Incubators function in differentiated way, some are located in an actual
physical space meant to foster networking among entrepreneurs and their
coaches and others operate on a virtual basis as well.
Their investment structures vary from loans to equity and just mentoring and
assistance, not to forget the immensely valuable connections they offer.

comprehensive list of incubators in India with all the information regarding
their investment structures and focus areas as well.
