Karnataka’s success in technology innovation and constantly delivering disruptive technologies has positioned it as one of the only Indian States to appear on the directories for Innovation Hubs. Several Initiatives launched by the State such as seed funding for new / disruptive ideas/startups, Centre of Excellences in emerging areas like IoT & AI, white papers, consultative workshops etc. have been giving entrepreneurs and companies the right platform to build and grow the emerging areas.

While disruptive technologies, new business models, and accelerating pace of change is shifting the business landscape, we as a State recognize the importance of an Innovation Economy and government’s role to support this change.

Some of our recent Initiatives to promote Innovation Economy include:

  • Reinvigorating the Startup ecosystem by an Innovation Society – K-tech (Karnataka Innovation & Technology Society).
  • Establishing a ‘Legal Framework for Innovation’ to bring new and emerging technologies underalegal framework and administer Regulatory Sandboxes.
  • Formalizing the mechanism to draft policies / regulations regarding adoption of disruptive technologies / business models.
  • Transformation of Nasscom 10k Warehouse to K-Tech Innovation Hub.

To continue excelling in this journey, we realize the importance of building a roadmap in conjunction with all our ecosystem partners and hence this Stakeholder workshop was conducted on 16th of May 2018 at NASSCOM WAREHOUSE, Lower Ground Floor, Diamond District ISRO Colony, Domlur with:
