The Government of India has setup the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog. The overarching purpose of this Mission is to promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in India. The Government realizes that there is a need to create high class incubation facilities across various parts of India with suitable physical infrastructure in terms of capital equipment and operating facilities, coupled with the availability of sectoral experts for mentoring the start-ups.
Accordingly, AIM proposes to support establishment of Atal Incubation Centre (AICs) that would support innovators and start-up businesses in their pursuit to become successful entrepreneurs. The scheme would be known as Atal Incubation Centre scheme.
Niti Aayog invites interested academic/research institutions, private organization or individuals to apply for Atal Incubation Centre (AIC) under Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) with the objective of transforming start-up ecosystem in India.
AIM is funding 100 Atal Incubation Centres across the country. We’re setting up sector-specific incubation centres to support start-ups. Interested academic/research institutions, private organization or individuals can apply.
