The State of Karnataka has always been a pioneer and front runner in terms of understanding and creating the awareness of technology, processes and best practices. There is a need to strengthen the various aspects of rural innovations in Karnataka, including the characteristics of innovation ecosystem, the conditions for the local business sectors, industrial diversity, access to physical and digital infrastructure, relations with urban counterparts and more.

The focus at these workshops would be learnings to design innovation support mechanisms that are adapted to rural needs. Innovations coming up with products like solar-powered freezers for farmers to zero-electricity water purifiers, have the potential to dramatically impact the way people live in rural areas. There is a need to promote and recognise innovative startups from the urban areas working on products/services/solutions impacting rural areas as well as innovative Startups from the rural areas developing products/services/solutions addressing the pain areas of rural communities. Further, innovators concentrated in the rural areas who are nascent should be encouraged to take up entrepreneurship and leading to formation of legal entity, which will enhance the socio economic condition of rural communities.

Startups who qualify to be part of Grassroot or Rural Innovations are defined as those Startups that lead bottom-up solutions for sustainable development; solutions that respond to local situation/interest/values of rural communities and are aimed at improving the socio-economic condition / ease of living and standard of living of the rural communities.
