Birth of the village      The idea of Startup Village was conceived in 2008 by Sanjay Vijayakumar and his team (the group also founded MobMe, a start-up in Kerala), students in the College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram. "When we started, we had informed the DST we would incubate 48 companies in five years. But the response from the student community was immense. The initial project was charted for five years. Within 12 months, we have fulfilled all our commitments and would submit the project completion report to the government," said Sijo George Kuruvilla, chief executive of Startup Village and co-founder of MobMe. Startup Village, registered as a not-for-profit organisation, started operations in 2012 and received grants worth Rs 5 crore. Of this, Rs 2.5 crore came from the government, while the private sector accounted for Rs 2.5 crore.

They formed MobMe. Today, the same team wants to create an ecosystem for students in Kerala." The 5,000-sq ft incubation centre in the park has four halls that house 13 companies. On a wall of the innovation room (one of the halls) is a portrait of Gopalakrishnan, along with an inspirational message for the innovators of tomorrow: "We started Infosys in a room of about this size; it is your turn now." Startup Village is the first centre in the country and the second in the world to have 1 gigabit-per-second connectivity.

Another initiative by the centre, in partnership with the Rajeev Motwani Foundation, is SV Square, which provides start-ups and students from Kerala access to Silicon Valley experience. A Startup Village team has also visited the UK. "A start-up from Kerala is now selected for a US-based accelerator programme. With our 'Startup Village to Silicon Valley' programme, we are sending students to the Valley. These are some signs of what we are trying to achieve," says Sanjay Vijayakumar, chief executive of MobMe and chairman
