Hyderabad will host a two-day inception meeting of the Startup 20 Engagement Group, set up under India's G20 presidency, from Saturday.
G20 is a grouping of developed and developing nations. India is holding its presidency for this year.
Startup 20 is an important engagement group and Hyderabad has a culture of innovation, G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant told reporters on Friday.
Startup20 has three different tracks, namely, foundation and alliance, finance and inclusivity and sustainability, said Anurag Jain, Secretary, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade.
Startup20 aspires to create a global narrative for supporting start ups and enabling synergies between start ups, corporates, investors, innovation agencies and other key ecosystem stakeholders, an official release said.
The purpose of this group is to provide a common platform for start ups from G20 member countries to come together to develop actionable guidance in the form of building of enabler's capacities, identification of funding gaps, enhancement of employment opportunities, achievement of SDG targets and climate resilience, and growth of an inclusive ecosystem, it said.
