The Emerging Startups Of Goa That Are Thriving Despite Lack Of Private Investments

Dec 31, 2019

However, startups have come up across the length and breadth of the state Some of the prominent startups in Goa are Minkspay, HandyTrain and Lightcat Sunkissed Goa is not just one of the hottest tourist destinations in India, but also an emerging startup ecosystem despite the limited connectivity, inadequate access to private investments and a myriad of infrastructure woes. Among these, the lack of investments is perhaps the hardest challenge for entrepreneurs to overcome. After all, connectivity and logistics issues can be overcome with ingenuity, but the lack of funds is a hurdle that founders cannot cross alone. Amey Karmali of Centre for Incubation and Business Acceleration ( CIBA ) agrees that the biggest challenge for Goan startups is this lack of access to funds. The state does not have any angel investor or venture capitalists, he added to emphasis the point. Unlike their major presence neighbouring Karnataka and Maharashtra, VCs view Goa only as a holiday destination. There’s some relief in the form of government intervention. Even though the state government has started offering grants to emerging startups, the process is far from simple. It’s said to take about five to six months and that can be the difference between survival and shutdown for an early stage startup. Under the Goa state startup policy, the government is disbursing a one-time grant of INR 10 Lakh ($15,373) to startups with a minimum viable product. According to Karmali, the Goa startup ecosystem has only started growing in 2014, with the help of central government’s startup-focused initiatives such as Startup India. Hence, the volume of startups is low in the state but there is a definite sign of growth across the state’s coastline.
