Why Incubators And Accelerators Are The Foundation Stone Which Startups Need

India is now one of the largest startup hubs in the world. While the country boasts of 39K active startups, a lot of startups have shut shop early, owing to the lack of resources and correct mentoring in their early stages.

A part of the reason for this is the lack of proper guidance during early formative stages. Countries such as the USA have 1 accelerator or incubator for 67 startups. In India though, the scenario is quite different, India has 1 incubator and accelerator per 156 startups.

However the scenario is changing and in the last three years India has seen a growth in the number of incubators and accelerators in the country with more than 250 at present. What is heartening is that now incubators are looking beyond the popular markets to help out startups in alternative sectors, which is important for an inclusive growth of the country’s startup ecosystem.
