Description

Startup Oasis (Joint Initiative of CIIE-IIMA and RIICO, GoR) is a Jaipur based incubation center that is developing an ecosystem in Rajasthan to inspire and support students, aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups to solve persistent problems, develop breakthrough innovations and create world class enterprises.

Startup Oasis while engaging with different stakeholders is also addressing the social issues which need urgent solution and meaningful social impact and towards this Startup Oasis is organizing a social impact student focused program called Stupreneurs (Concept note attached) .The program will evaluate impact focused student startups all across Rajasthan to make state hub of social enterprise.

Startup Oasis has recently collaborated with the Department of Technical Education, Government of Rajasthan to set up and operate incubation centres in seven engineering colleges across the state – Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Jhalawar, Ajmer and Kota. Our focus in these centres is to incubate and support students and startups with a strong focus on social impact at the Bottom of the Pyramid.

Among other activities planned, we are also planning to launch a state wide social impact business plan competition, especially for students and recent graduates, called Stuprenuers.

Stupreneurs is State Level impact and innovation challenge program to make Rajasthan a source of innovation and startups to positively impact our economy. An ecosystem based approach where mentors, business leaders and other professionals support and mentor such startups. 

The whole program works on three things

CoWrite – Write a business plan which solves the local community problem and has a disproportionate impact on region or world.

Connect – Connect with right stakeholder which may accelerate the growth of enterprise .

Create – Create viable product which  may scale scalable to other geography.

 

Objective

Rajasthan comes under low income states of India. To address the issues of sustainable growth, it needs multiple scalable innovations and impact enterprises.Through the Stupreneurs Program, we can create a value chain which starts from inception of ideas  to impact on millions of people who are living out of sustainable ecosystem of living.Startup Oasis is already operating incubation hubs in the 7 division of Rajasthan through its physical TEDSTART centers (www.tedstart.com). Startup Oasis is the implementing body of the INVENT program (http://startupoasis.in/invent.php) which can fund social enterprises upto Rs 50 Lakhs.
