Financial assistance to startups for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, market entry, and commercialization
The Need For Startup India Seed Fund Scheme
Easy availability of capital is essential for entrepreneurs at the early stages of growth of an enterprise.
Funding from angel investors and venture capital firms becomes available to startups only after the proof of concept has been provided. Similarly, banks provide loans only to asset-backed applicants.
It is essential to provide seed funding to startups with an innovative idea to conduct proof of concept trials.
Objective Of The Scheme
Startup India Seed Fund Scheme (SISFS) aims to provide financial assistance to startups for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, market entry and commercialization.
This would enable these startups to graduate to a level where they will be able to raise investments from angel investors or venture capitalists or seek loans from commercial banks or financial institutions.
