Technology Business Incubators at IIT Madras!

Entrepreneurial ventures translating ideas from academic research to bring practical benefits to communities have been supported from an early phase of IITM’s activities. The informal incubation atmosphere at different research groups at IITM has over the years evolved a number of dedicated bodies and societies for nurturing innovation and entrepreneurship. IITM now seeks to leverage these experiences and give entrepreneurship a wider push in order to address the needs of the society at large through institutionalized incubation support.

IIT Madras Incubation Cell and IITM’s Rural Technology and Business Incubator are the two incubators at IITM, which have been recognised as Technology Business Incubators (TBI) by National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board (NSTEDB), Department of Science & Technology (DST), GoI. Both these incubators are located within the IITM Research Park, and actively collaborate on different levels.
