Seed Fund Scheme


  • Easy availability of capital is essential for entrepreneurs at the early stages of growth of an enterprise.
  • Funding from angel investors and venture capital firms becomes available to startups only after the proof of concept has been provided. Similarly, banks provide loans only to asset-backed applicants. It is essential to provide seed funding to startups with an innovative idea to conduct proof of concept trials
  • Startups recognized by JKEDI are eligible for a one-time assistance of up to ₹20 lakhs, disbursed in 4 equal installments. This seed funding supports activities such as developing prototypes, launching innovative products or services, marketing, and scaling up ventures. The funding is provided based on the evaluation criteria outlined in the Start-up Policy operational guidelines and is subject to progress monitored by JKEDI or the concerned Incubator. All funding cases are appraised and approved by the Start-up Task Force Committee.
