LaunchPilot works under three core principles of “Learn, Build, and Scale” to assist aspiring entrepreneurs, working professionals, and first-time founders on their “0-1” journey. With this innovative strategy, LaunchPilot supports entrepreneurs in developing and implementing their ideas, accelerating their growth by putting them in touch with seasoned mentors and investors for knowledge and insights into building ideas with the aim of helping them prepare for growth and investment by co-building ideas with them.

According to data from Startup India, India has one of the top 3 startup ecosystems in the world, with over 1,12,718 DPIIT-recognized startups spread across 763 districts.

By addressing these common challenges faced by startup founders, LaunchPilot aims to lessen the load on them with its distinct approach and contribute to the advancement of economic empowerment, innovation, and entrepreneurship in India.
