IIT Madras is a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship!

This could be a REALLY long answer, but we’ll try to keep it concise.There have been more than 200 tech startups incubated at IITM, but some that stand out include:

  • Ather Energy
  • DocsApp
  • Cygni
  • Uniphore. 

These startups function across the fields of EV, water conservation, fashion tech, architecture, medical wearables, rural tech, new age bicycles… the list goes on and on (and includes 11 unicorn companies to boot - how about that!).

The body responsible for nurturing IITM's innovators is the Incubation Cell. It works with bodies like the Rural Technology and Business Incubator, E-cell, the Center for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the IITM Entrepreneurship Forum to give entrepreneurship a huge push. It provides space, infrastructure, mentoring by IITM’s vast alumni network, training programmes, business support and even seed funding! There’s a huge ecosystem of entrepreneurship within IITM and if you want to delve deep and read more about it, you can do it here!
