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.
