Gujarat Government has initiated series of initiatives to support Innovators and Start-ups with an aim to nurture end to end ecosystem in the state. Education Department is making persistent efforts towards achieving the above goal and developed student start-up and innovation policy (SSIP) covering entire academia in the state. Through this policy, various flagship programs have been launched involving best innovation and start-up pedagogies from across the world. The core belief behind these programs is around the fact that,given a platform, young minds across universities are capable of applying their creative minds to become problem solver and innovators. Our previous programs like Smart Gujarat for New India Hackathon, Summer Innovation Challenge and others have showcased innovative ideas being conceived and developed by students, alumni, innovators and start-ups. To take such mission ahead, SSIP is going to launch “Student Open Innovation Challenge” which will create a unique environment across academia in the state. Through this program we are aiming to involve innovative teams in short to medium term and develop innovative solutions.
