What makes you a Startup under the Startup India Program?

Companies must be either limited liability companies or limited partnerships to qualify.

For the first decade after its incorporation, the company is still considered to be in its "startup" phase.

The Indian government has extended the startup period from 7 to 10 years to provide businesses with more possibilities and tax breaks.

A company is still considered a startup provided its annual revenue does not exceed ₹100 crore in any of those 10 years.

Once the threshold is reached, the company can no longer be considered a startup.

The Indian government has raised the threshold to ₹100 crore from ₹25 crore in recent years.

The company must have the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) clearance.

The company should be supported by a Private Equity Fund, Angel Fund, or Incubation Fund.

The Indian Patent and Trademark Office must provide patron assurance before any trademark may be filed.

A letter of recommendation from an incubator is required.

The business must develop novel strategies and ideas.

Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) registration is required for all funding information.
