IIT alumni, business strategy consultant and angel investor Nityanand Gopalika has launched Thinkubate incubation center to incubate student startups.
Students with good business ideas struggle to give shape to their dreams. They find it very hard to get funding, advice and support from VCs, angel investors etc due to competition and lack of expertise. Thinkubate gives them a chance to give shape to their ideas before hitting the market with their product or service. Nityanand Gopalika’s incubation centre is a gift for these ambitious young aspiring student entrepreneurs. Startup ecosystem is slowly but steadily evolving in India with startup friendly policies of the government and active venture capitalists like Nityanand Gopalika. Thinkubate is opening new avenues and possibilities for energetic young students. There can be no better time than now to launch a startup incubator when India’s prime minister Mr Narendra Modi is determined to unleash the creative potential of the nation’s young talent through mission Atmanirbhar Bharat.
“Incubators are one of the important pillars of Atmanirbhar Bharat. With 1.3 billion people in India and more than 1.4 million schools, 10,500 engineering and related institutions, and 39,000 colleges spread across 715 districts, more than 150 million students will be entering the workplace over the next 5-10 years. It is very important to provide these young students and budding innovators an opportunity to be able to exercise and unveil their creative potential, their thirst and passion for coming up with innovative solutions for solving an existing problem that they see, or for improvising upon a solution that they think is necessary in existing solutions that are already there,” said Mr. R Ramanan Ramanathan, Mission Director, Atal Innovation Mission speaking about the role of Incubators in India.
Thinkubate business incubator is a workspace created by Nityanand Gopalika to offer student startups and their new ventures access to the resources they need, all under one roof. Thinkubate will help young students who are yet to graduate from their college, to start a business out of their ideas. The initial support for 6 months will be provided to the eligible team. In addition to a desk or office, Thinkubate provides resident companies with access to expert advisors, mentors, administrative support, office equipment, training, and potential investors. Thinkubate takes care of everything else so new startups can focus on their core product, service, customers and do what they do best without any distraction.
