We can make an impact together

We are particularly keen to work with companies who, through their innovative solutions, will make healthcare accessible and affordable to common man.
We also look forward to working with those companies who will reduce our nation’s dependence on other nations in our focus domains and will impact the lives of many in a positive way.
We mostly engage with entrepreneurial aspirants and early stage startups in their attempt to create a commercially viable product offering and to launch it in the market. We like to maintain a multi-cultural environment and are open to entrepreneurs from across the country.
