We hope it is both bark and bite (that the idea catches and results in young entrepreneurs getting the support they need in an an otherwise very old school economic culture that would definitely benefit from more startups) and will track it; but for now, fyi:
Who we are
Startup Village is a technology business incubator in Kochi and it is India’s first incubator that is funded jointly by the public and private sector. The promoters of Startup Village are Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, Technopark Trivandrum and MobME Wireless.

What we do

We will create an ecosystem that promotes innovation and provides a platform for youngsters to create cutting-edge technology. Our focus is on student start-ups and telecom innovation.
