About the incubation program

Udgam Incubator is for budding entrepreneurs, industry professionals, and makers dedicated to the creation of innovative products/companies. The unique aspect of Udgam Incubator is that it has interconnects with several other entrepreneurial components such as SEE, the School for Entrepreneurial Excellence, Imaginarium, the creative lab, Accelerator and Co-working facilities. This provides the opportunity to create new products and companies. We support every stage of the development—from ideas to prototypes, to investments, and beyond.

Our program not only focusses on funding for the startup but the overall idea is to bring the startup to a stage where it is ready for scalability through mentoring, networking and possible collaborations. As per our past incubation cohorts, our program helps in increasing funding opportunities for startups.
