Startup School

The Silver Angels Startup School is for people over 50 years, aspiring to chart a new entrepreneurial journey.

The Indian startup ecosystem is growing at a rapid clip with valuations ranging from a few millions to many billion dollars. The proliferation of a digital ecosystem is transforming many industries, has resulted in the emergence of the gig economy, and reduced the entry barrier to participate in economic activities regardless of one’s age.

The Startup School aims to offer structured programs to unlock the entrepreneurial potential of 50 plus adults. The school is for those that aspire to be authors, travel writers, business mentors, lifestyle entrepreneurs or social media influencers and step out of their comfort zone. The Startup School is not an employment portal, an events platform or a counseling service.


The Startup School’s Gig Challenges are offered in partnership with experts and brands for you to participate, win prizes and most importantly, access coaching sessions. Our goal is to assist in your pursuit of a passion, support in taking your skills to the market or be a launchpad in becoming an entrepreneur.

Challenges are open to anybody over 50 years of age across India, including people of Indian origin residing outside the country. Each challenge will last for a few weeks and winners will receive a prize money and other benefits.

Our first challenge is for aspiring writers – The Book Challenge.

The Startup School for 50 plus adults is an initiative of Silver Angels, a deep focus platform tracking the emerging silver economy focused on longevity, ageing journeys and the eldercare ecosystem in India.

You can write to for any questions or collaboration opportunities.
