India is innovating – in the villages, cities and metros. It is innovating with the college student, an office executive and a management honcho – all itching to move from their confines to a start-up mode. This innovation ‘is critical to economic change’, one of the most influential economists of the 20th century, Schumpeter believed.

The drivers of innovation or technological change are entrepreneurs or ‘wild spirits’, Schumpeter said and elaborated that technological innovation often creates temporary monopolies, allowing abnormal profits. This is what YourNest aspires to sow and reap.

India's start-up ecosystem has responded to the demand of these ‘wild spirits’. It is reflected in rise of accelerators and incubators, creation of co-working spaces, and successful exits.
