The government on Tuesday launched three new tools for States and Union Territories for ranking of startups in the country.

At an event in New Delhi, Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Suresh Prabhu launched three tools: the State and Union Territory Startup Ranking Framework, the Compendium of Good Practices for Promoting Startups in India and the Startup India Kit.

The key objective of the Startup States and UTs Ranking Framework is to encourage States and UTs to take proactive steps towards strengthening the Startup ecosystems at the local level, said the ministry.

"The Ranking Framework will  measure the impact of each step initiated at the local level for building a strong Startup ecosystem. The Ranking Framework will also enable contnuous learning through the dissemination of good practices," it added.

India is home to about 20,000 startups, with about 1,400 beginning operations every year.

The State and UT Ranking Framework is based on the feedback collected from Startup ecosystem stakeholders, which include startups, mentors, investors, accelerators, incubators and the government bodies. 

Areas which should be given greater thrust like seed funding support, women entrepreneurship are given more score.
