The Rajasthan government recently announced a brand new policy for the state's startups and entrepreneurs. The Rajasthan Startup Policy 2022 aims to promote the state as an innovation hub and to boost startup growth across industry verticals such as agriculture, education, healthcare, and fintech; to increase job opportunities for and upskill youth, and to encourage diversity and sustainability within the startup ecosystem.

The new policy expands on the previous startup policy, which was implemented in 2015, by providing more incentives to startups and broadening its scope.

The base funding amount for all startups registered in the government's iStart Rajasthan programme has been increased from Rs 1.2 lakh to Rs 2.4 lakh, with an additional Rs 60,000 given to startups with female founders who own more than 50% of the company.

A variety of other funding incentives are available for startups based on their QRate, an iStart-recognized rating system for startups based on potential and investment worthiness.
