About the India Green Entrepreneurship Snapshot
The damaging effects of climate change in India are all-encompassing, threatening agriculture and food supplies, energy security, water security, and public health. To ameliorate climate and environmental challenges, India has committed to a green economic transition through various government policies and initiatives. India has the the world’s third largest entrepreneurial ecosystem after the United States and China, and an increasing number of sustainability-oriented startups, investors, incubators, and accelerators in India is shaping a vibrant green ecosystem. This report examines the ecosystem of support for green entrepreneurs in India. Using data collected via surveys and desk research, this snapshot report uncovers important challenges and opportunities for green entrepreneurship to inform stakeholders of how to better support the development of India’s green economy.
This snapshot was produced in collaboration with EcoMap. Rather than using data from one point in time, the snapshot continually updates to provide a live directory of organizations and programs in India's green entrepreneurial ecosystem. The website provides an overview of key insights from the data as well as a filterable directory of support organizations categorized by sector and stage focus, location, support type, and more.
