Abstract: Pioneering a new idea in the presence of industry tycoons can be a daunting prospect. Successful new enterprises can challenge the accepted norms with new concepts, thereby, transforming industries. The road to success can be tough for new businesses. However, we see some of the strongest ideas emerging from Startups. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched an ambitious program called ‘Startup India, Standup India’ initiative. India’s economic future lies in encouraging startups which will bring dynamism, new thinking and job creation in Indian economy. On account of the current consumer demographics, India offers the largest pie for investment opportunities that the world is eyeing. The need of the hour requires various stakeholders such as the government, educational institutions, consumers, financial institutions, students, corporate citizens, and others to join hands to build a better ecosystem of young, budding and socially responsible entrepreneurs. The format of ‘ENVISAGE 2018 - Start-Ups: Innovation to Reality’ (from Ideas to Markets), is analytically driven. It challenges the participant’s intrinsic knowledge about innovative start ups, their economic feasibility, employment generation ability, entrepreneurial skill development, social impact and the opportunities and prospects in India.
