The vast population of India depends on agricultural activities for various purposes which include the contribution of the agricultural sector in the GDP of the country, providing food to the population, generating revenue for the government, generation of employment, etc. An organic farming method used by the agricultural sector is revolutionized by the green start-ups which help in the economic development of India through the path of sustainable development. The government's intention and initiative to promote start-ups in India have helped in creating jobs, improving the standard of living, and the overall development of the nation. Green start-ups are being prioritized by the population who is related to agricultural work. The paper primarily focuses on the research work done to study the need and growth of green start-ups in India. The paper also focuses on the economic factors that are influenced by the growing green start-ups in India.
