AIM-iLEAP Program

NITI Aayog’s flagship program - Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) has been at the forefront of promoting a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

AIM has partnered up with Startup Réseau - a leading startup accelerator and operator, to support its various initiatives, programs, and beneficiaries through a structured program that will provide AIM-backed startups with much-needed access to industry, markets, and investors. AIM iLEAP (Innovative Leadership for Entrepreneurial Agility and Profitability) is a series of Enterprise and Investor Demo Days. AIM iLEAP was launched to support #startupsuccess by overcoming two major bottlenecks they face - market and investor access.
