Startup Village aims to launch 1,000 technology startups over the next 10 years and start the search for the next billion-dollar Indian company. We want to be India's number one startup destination.

We are more than just a business incubator. We want to change the way Indians look at entrepreneurship. Most of our education campaigns and initiatives provide students the skills they need to design world-class technology products and start their own companies. We are funded jointly by the private and the public sector.
These young entrepreneurs have surprised everyone with their innovative ideas and energy.
Our partners provide a wide array of services to our startups at a heavily discounted rate.
Kris Gopalakrishnan, co-founder of Infosys and the most successful IT entrepreneur from Kerala, is the chief mentor at Startup Village. We have many more business leaders as our mentors.
In January 2013, Startup Village and the Kerala government launched an initiative called SVSquare. Every year, we select promising young entrepreneurs from India and send them on an all-expense paid trip to the U.S. Our aim is to expose our youngsters to the legendary startup environment in Silicon Valley.
We hold our community gathering on 3rd Saturday of every month. The event is held at our campus in Kochi and we showcase latest products by our startups to prominent entrepreneurs, investors and mentors who visit from all over the country. We want our students and founders to hobnob with some of the biggest names in India’s business community, learn from the experience of well-known entrepreneurs and connect with investors.
Started in July 2013, Devlooop is one of our biggest education campaigns. Our aim is to create 1000 professional app developers by the end of this year. The program is open to college students all over the country. Most recent graduates in India are not job-ready. We want to give them practical skills and boost their chances of getting a great job.
