The Government of India has setup the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog. The overarching purpose of this Mission is to promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in India. The Government realizes that there is a need to create world class incubation facilities across various parts of India with suitable physical infrastructure in terms of capital equipment and operating facilities, coupled with the availability of sectoral experts for mentoring the start-ups, business planning support, access to seed capital, industry partners, trainings and other relevant components required for encouraging innovative start-ups. Accordingly, AIM supports the establishment of Atal Incubation Centres (AICs) that would nurture innovative start-up businesses in their pursuit to become scalable and sustainable enterprises. The scheme is known as Atal Incubation Centre.

 

In first year of its operation AIM selected 10 applicants from all over the country for providing the grant-in-aid for setting up Atal Incubation Centres. BIMTECH, Geater Noida was one of the 10 shortlisted applicants where a sprawling incubation centre was set-up in Knowledge park-III.
