Promoting and Accelerating Young and ASpiring technology entrepreneurs (PRAYAS) is one the programs to support young innovators turn their ideas into proof-of-concepts. This support shall allow the innovators to try their ideas without fear of failure, hence allowing them to reach a stage where they have a ready product and are willing to approach incubators for commercialization.
