The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) created Startup India Seed Fund Scheme with an outlay of Rs 945 crore to provide financial assistance to startups for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, market entry and commercialization. It enables technology embedded and innovation powered start-ups to survive and scale across a wide-spectrum of thrust areas with funding, infrastructure, mentorship, industry networking, resources, and training.

The scheme is aimed at enabling startups to graduate to a level where they will be able to raise investments from angel investors or venture capitalists, or seek loans from commercial banks or financial institutions. With technologies like Web3, NFT, Blockchain Technology, Metaverse, and AI gaining momentum, it is essential to support startups to make India the global leader in these fields. Interestingly, Oracle Movies is venturing into the Metaverse too soon.
