Launched in April 2013, 10,000 Startups is an initiative by NASSCOM to scale up the startup ecosystem in India. We began our journey with the aim to enable incubation, funding, and support for 10,000 technology startups in India over the next ten years.

The program’s vision has been to foster entrepreneurship, build entrepreneurial capabilities at scale and strengthen early stage support for tech startups.

Over 6 years, with over 5800 startups graduating from the initiative, more than 3500 events and programs, over 500 startup-corporate connects, 400 start-ups in global ecosystems, and over 150 new product concepts, we have facilitated in making India one of the top 3 startup ecosystems in the world.
