Karnataka has launched a “proof of concept” fund for women entrepreneurs.
The state in southwestern India, home to tech hub Bangalore, created Idea2POC – for proof of concept – to help female innovators prove out their concepts, get certified and pilot their manufacturing processes.
The Rs 10 crore ($1.5 million) fund is part of the state’s $333 million initiative to nurture 20,000 tech, social impact and other startups by 2020.
