IIT Madras Incubation Cell
The IIT Madras Incubation Cell seeks to nurture technology and knowledge-based ventures through their start-up phase by providing the necessary support to help entrepreneurs survive in the competitive market and reach a stage where they can scale-up their ventures further. The IITMIC aims to build and share resources including space and infrastructure, access to business support services, mentoring, training programmes to enhance the skills of entrepreneurs and seed funds. The scope of support is broad-based, and covers technologies/IP developed wholly at the Institute or partly through collaborations elsewhere, as well as external start-ups with which IIT Madras members are associated as consultants or mentors. IITMIC is particularly open to proposals with strong social and strategic impact.
