It has been experienced globally that the start-ups and large corporates can meaningfully collaborate while scripting the success stories for mutual benefits. Drawing upon this realization, CII has launched ‘Corporate-Start-up Business Partnership Platform’ wherein it is envisioned that CII member companies in every state ties up with at least one start-up this year.
Under this initiative, start-ups develop products or services for catering to the specific needs of the large corporates. In return, the start-ups are effectively nurtured by the corporates by providing mentorship, financial support, business guidance and finally inducting the start-ups in their supply chain. Since its launch, the platform has been positioned as one of the most prestigious recognition from the corporate world to the most promising start-ups for their excellence in developing cutting edge technology and innovation, wealth creation, and employment generation. While in the year 2018, 11 corporates partnered with 11 start-ups out of the total of 500 applications, in 2019, 13 corporates selected 13 start-ups out of a total of 689 applications.
The Office of PSA & Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has collaborated with CII for this initiative. PSA, GoI requests you to share this opportunity with all faculty and Start up ecosystem so that those interested could apply for these initiatives and be recognized for excellence in cutting-edge innovations and at the same time secure the corporate connect. Under the ambit of CII ‘Corporate-Start-up Business Partnership Platform’, there will be a commitment of mentorship/co-creation by the large corporates to selected start-ups for mutual benefits and business expansion. The selected start-ups will also get recognition at various CII platforms.
