What is a StartUp?
A startup is generally termed a newly conceived business, usually small, coined with an idea to solve a problem in the market. What differentiates it from other businesses is that a startup should offer a product or service that is not provided elsewhere in the same way. The keyword is innovation. The business either develops a new product/ service or redevelops a product/service already available into something better.

A brief description of the innovative nature of your products/services.
Step 4: Answer whether you would like to avail tax benefits
Startups are exempted from income tax for 3 years. But to avail of these benefits, they must be certified by the Inter-Ministerial Board (IMB). Startups recognized by DIPP, Govt. of India can now directly avail of IPR related benefits without requiring any additional certification from IMB.

That’s it! On applying, you will immediately get a recognition number for your startup. The certificate of recognition will be issued after the examination of all your documents.
However, be careful while uploading the documents. Suppose on subsequent verification. It is found that the required document is not uploaded/the wrong document uploaded, or a forged document has been uploaded. In that case, you shall be liable to a fine of 50% of your paid-up capital of the startup with a minimum fine of Rs. 25,000.
Step 7: Other Areas
a) Patents, trademarks or design registration
If you need a patent for your innovation or a trademark for your business, you can easily approach any from the list of facilitators issued by the Government. You will need to bear only the statutory fees, thus getting an 80% reduction in fees.
One of the critical challenges faced by many startups has been accessing finance. Due to lack of experience, security or existing cash flows, entrepreneurs fail to attract investors. Besides, the high-risk nature of startups, as a significant percentage fail to take off, puts off many investors.
To provide funding support, the Government has set up a fund with an initial corpus of INR 2,500 crore and a total corpus of INR 10,000 crore for 4 years (i.e. INR 2,500 crore per year). The Fund is like Fund of Funds, which means that it will not invest directly into Startups, but shall participate in the capital of SEBI registered Venture Funds.
