Incubation Services

The incubation services will be provided by the Department of Commerce & Industries to those entrepreneurs/stakeholders (referred as incubatees herewith) submitting their ideas, which qualify for being a probable self-sustaining business enterprise in manufacturing or service sector. The services will be provided through established incubators being setup by the department in due course of time under Startup Chhattisgarh initiative of the state government.

The idea submission is open to all the stakeholders across the state who have self-evaluated that their proposition could be transformed into a profit making startup/business entity. A further evaluation of these ideas will be done by the expert panel running the incubation centres and subject to their approval further action will be taken. The ideas will be supported from their birth to launch in market. Following points have to be kept in mind while submitting ideas as an incubatee:

  • A mere submission of idea does not makes a stakeholder eligible to be an incubatee
  • The idea should have be self-evaluated and be supported by proper justifications when stakeholder be called upon for screening as a incubatee
  • The incubatee would be selected by the expert panel of the incubator which will consist of experts with respect to technical knowledge, business planning, marketing and agency having prior experience in incubation of startups in India
  • The services of incubator would start only after recognition is provided by Government of India to the incubator supported by Department of Commerce & Industries
  • The idea should not have been earlier rejected by any inter-governmental panel / incubator of any state government or Central government
  • The ideas could be with respect to any sector and sub-sector

The Government of Chhattisgarh is committed to promote entrepreneurship and startups under the aegis of “Startup Chhattisgarh” initiatives under Government of India flagship of “Startup India”
