Sunil Bhatia Start-up Resource Hub was inaugurated on July 15, 2023 with a generous endowment of up to ₹10 crores from Sunil Bhatia; an alumnus of SPJIMR PGDM 1989 batch. Sunil is a Board Member, Investor and former CEO of Infogain. His contribution resonates with both his and SPJIMR’s commitment to boosting the start-up ecosystem in India. The Sunil Bhatia Start-up Resource Hub is a comprehensive ecosystem for budding start-up founders. The Hub will fund educational and networking activities that support entrepreneurship at three levels: Pre-Incubation, Incubation, and Acceleration.


The Hub will offer networking opportunities, boot camps, workshops, masterclasses, contests, and micro-grants to entrepreneurs, with the goal of identifying and connecting the most promising start-ups to the appropriate incubators from the Hub’s network of high-quality incubators across the country. Hub events for entrepreneurs will be conducted in-person in key cities, and also online.


The Hub will act as a quality feeder of early stage start-ups to India’s incubator network. The Hub will also provide educational programming to start-ups housed in partner incubators, and will help promising start-ups to graduate from the incubator to domain-specific accelerators such as SPJIMR FinNovate Accelerator for FinTech & TechFin and SPJIMR EarthLab Accelerator for Sustainability oriented start-ups.


The Hub will support the start-ups selected into SPJIMR FinNovate Accelerator and SPJIMR Earth Lab Accelerator with customised educational programming and by also funding alongside the institutional early-stage investors part of the Wise Tec network. FinNovate & Earth Lab Accelerators feature a prominent Corporate Network and a distinguished “C” level mentor network.
