Rajasthan is proving to be a breeding ground for entrepreneurs and innovative thinkers. Millions of young minds with new ideas, the confidence of investors, and support from the government are ready to take ahead the startup drive in the state.
With no small thanks to the Government of Rajasthan, which has launched and effectively implemented initiatives such as iStart, Digifest, and Rajasthan IT Day in the past three years to create a conducive atmosphere for startups in the state.
The Honourable chief minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje, has also called upon the youth to join hands with the government and contribute towards the advancement of the digital revolution in the state. In line with this, the Rajasthan government launched a platform — Challenge for Change — in August 2017 as part of its flagship initiative iStart.
Since its launch more than 133K people have registered of the platform so far and as of now five challenges in different domains can be seen active.
