Social Inclusion has always been the hallmark of Tamil Nadu’s policies and schemes. Creating economic opportunities is one of the most important ways to create an inclusive society. Entrepreneurship enables social and economic empowerment. However, due to lack of funding many aspiring entrepreneurs from the Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribe communities are unable to enter the mainstream entrepreneurial ecosystem.
We are building the nation’s pioneering diverse and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Tamil Nadu Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribe Startup Fund is an initiative of the Government of Tamil Nadu to address the issue of financial exclusion of Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribe entrepreneurs. The objective of the fund is to invest in startups founded by entrepreneurs exclusively from the Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribe communities.
We want to actively make our ecosystem more inclusive by reaching out to people who have been under-represented in the ecosystem.
