Bengaluru: India’s fastest-growing accelerator, Marwari Catalysts has always been playing a pivotal role in building the startup ecosystem in the country. It is enabling startups across geographies and industries to realize their vision in a seamless manner, thereby connecting the dots in the startup ecosystem. It has been acting as a bridge between startups and investors, effectively building a unique startup dedicated framework that has helped entrepreneurs acquire funding and bag successful multi-million exits.

Today, the accelerator is yet again making headlines as few of its portfolio startups raise Rs. 1.5 Cr. from state and central government startup facilitation schemes.

Over the last few years, India has emerged as the third largest startup ecosystem in the world with aspirations to be the world’s number one. The startup industry is growing with a vision to make entrepreneurship a preferred career choice for the youth. This startup movement has witnessed 72,993 DPIIT recognized startups as of 30th June.

The state and central government in India are creating a dynamic and collaborative ecosystem that is enabling easy availability of workspaces, funds, relevant technology, skilling and mentoring support, and access to high-leverage markets.

In the state, Marwari Catalyst is working actively with iStart Rajasthan, a flagship initiative under the aegis of the Department of Information Technology and Communications (DoIT&C) to foster innovation, create jobs and facilitate investment. iStart Rajasthan has more than 1700 approved startups that have created above 20,000 job opportunities and funded 300+ startups with over 9.5 Cr since August 2021. Marwari Catalysts in association with iStart is set to play a democratizing and enabling role in Jodhpur to support entrepreneurship.

Emphasizing the state intervention to accelerate the growth of entrepreneurship, Mcats wants to highlight that Rajasthan has provided an integrated comprehensive platform to registered startups with state of art incubation space, capacity-building workshops, mentorship support, and investor connect, monetary support, etc. The Hub and Spoke model with Techno Hub Jaipur at Centre, iStart Nests at Divisional Level, and Incubation Cells at District Level will create a mesh of compelling startup ecosystem in the state. Working closely with iStart, Mcats-backed startups are availing the bouquet of benefits under the State Startup policy.

Extremely delighted with the fundraising, Sushil Sharma, Founder & CEO of Marwari Catalysts says, “India is at the right stage for startups, and MCats as an accelerator has always made its efforts towards providing an efficient platform to translate early-stage startups into market-ready products. Today this latest funding gives a strong validation to our startups from the government and with such state and central government startup initiatives, it will definitely accelerate the growth trajectory of our startup ecosystem in near future.”
