We are a not-for-profit ecosystem where entrepreneurs from Andhra Pradesh meet, share and collaborate with the world. Since 2014, over 1100 entrepreneurs took the leap from idea to a developing company, carving their name in Indian Startup story through StartAP®.
In 2018, we launched the first edition of StartAP® Awards to celebrate India's finest entrepreneurs and startups under a jury of the world's leading minds in business, technology and entertainment.
Visakhapatnam played host to a
pleathora of entrepreneurs, investors,
bureaucrats and technologists for
the first edition of StartAP® Awards.
No matter how big what you're building is, you can only build it one brick at a time. And the strength and durabilty of what you build will be dependant on the strength and durability of the bricks.
The StartAP® Awards identifies these bricks of the Indian Startup Ecosystem under the aegis of some of the world's leading minds in business, entertainment and technology.
We are on the search for India's most exceptional entrepreneurs, startups, brands and organisations. If you're one of them, submit your nomination today!SUBMIT A NOMINATION
