Unemployment in India is increasing at a rapid pace. Start-ups and Innovators create Employment, while large companies are known to shed experienced  & older manpower. However, Start-ups and Innovators need to be inspired and mentored well. India is ranked poorly on the global innovation index.

There are a few 'Angels' who are tirelessly working behind the scenes to create and power a Vibrant eco-system. There is currently no-means of recognizing, rewarding and empowering them. We need many more such persons to boost innovation.

A No-profit NGO, GCPIT has recently identified 21 'Angels'  who play an active part in the Start-up ecosystem and are working behind the scenes to propel India forward. They are: Abhay Jere, Ramanan Ramanathan Amitabh Kant, Saji Gopinath, Ajit Chauhan, Debjani Ghosh, Kris Gopalakrishnan, Pankaj Diwan, Ramesh Mashelkar, NS Raghavan, Guhesh Ramanathan, Prasanna Lohar, Dr Muneer M, Dr MS Swaminathan, Joanna Kane-Potaka Shradha Sharma, Rama Devi Lanka, Hari T.N, Gururaj Deshpande, Abhishek Singh Dr. Abha Rishi.

We demand the following to motivate others who work for the Startup growth:

1. Put in place a Ministerial commission to select 20 persons for Lifetime recognition.

2: Annual budget of Rs 1 Crore for them to support and extend help to Start-ups and Incubators.

3. Annual allowance of Rs 1 Crore as reward for their effort and inspiring others.

4. Trophy of 'Start-Up Ratna' and recommendation for Padma Awards.

Spend 5% of Start-Up / Incubation fund on rewarding Mentors and motivating them.
