IISc’s FSID invites applications for its deep science startup incubation programme

Sharing is caring!

Bengaluru, March 29th, 2023 – The Foundation for Science, Innovation and Development (FSID), the incubation wing of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore is inviting applications for its deep science incubation program. Applications particularly from women entrepreneurs and SC/ST/OBC/minorities are encouraged. The applications are to be emailed to stem.cell@iisc.ac.in before March 31st, 2023.

FSID’s focus on women/minority groups stems from the recognition of obstacles entrepreneurs face when heading a deep science enterprise, and the challenges faced by these groups make it even harder to build a successful startup. They require the necessary support and guidance in order to bridge this gap, and FSID will play this role.

The incubator offers access to state-of-the-art resources, invaluable mentorship, and a vibrant community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for innovation and change. It focuses on accelerating startup growth by helping entrepreneurs commercialize their innovations, taking products from the lab to the market.

Currently, FSID has a portfolio of over 80 startups spread across various domains such as Agri-Tech, Bio-Tech, Space-Tech, Medical devices, Life sciences, and others. For over 30 years, FSID has used an incredible repository of knowledge, world-class infrastructure, and talent to help incubate business enterprises. FSID was founded in close collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore.
