Startup In­dia is a flag­ship ini­tia­tive of the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia, in­tended to build a strong eco-sys­tem for nur­tur­ing in­no­va­tion and star­tups in the coun­try.

It’s been over a decade since star­tups caught the at­ten­tion when young, vi­brant minds started shun­ning con­ven­tional jobs by pur­su­ing out of the box ideas as their ca­reer choices.

While many made big news but only a few suc­ceeded. How­ever, ap­petite for such star­tups is only grow­ing.

Food star­tups and on­line gro­cery has been catch­ing the spot­light. While on­line gro­cery ver­ti­cal is gar­ner­ing its own share of ven­tures, food or­der­ing and de­liv­ery is not far be­hind.

In­dia Food Fo­rum 2018 launched this maiden ini­tia­tive aimed at sup­port­ing food star­tups and to have open house dis­cus­sions and de­bates about the chal­lenges they face dur­ing their jour­ney, in­no­va­tion plans, in­vest­ment and the fu­ture.
