Each startup goes through an idea and market validation process before getting into the core incubation mode. We will also be providing pitching sessions for the startups in March 2022 where we will be inviting investors. We plan to do this twice a year, once in March and then in November.”

Emerging opportunities

“In the last one year, among several sectors, we are seeing a lot of momentum in the healthcare and medtech space. The startup Maia Cares is looking at offering learning certification for nursing and caretakers and other areas such as critical care and psychology. This is a big untapped area,” he added.
