Aspiring entrepreneurs will be guided through a complete journey divided into distinct phases of ideation, creativity and prototype creation during the 21-month program. The initiative will guarantee that aspiring business owners receive organized assistance in every crucial circumstance of their growth.

“India’s space sector is poised for exponential growth, and young entrepreneurs are crucial to driving this expansion,” stated Dr. Pawan Goenka, Chairman of IN-SPACe.
