IIT-Bombay has always aimed at giving impetus to startups. Recently, The Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE) announced that any startup across the country can have access to its integrated prototype laboratory. 

The charges will be nominal and will mostly be on a pay-per-use model as the laboratory has to be sustained. Startups from IIT-Bombay can also make use of this facility. Taking into note the lack of access to a state-of-the-art lab to build prototypes, SINE has come up with this initiative.

Set up in 2004, it is one of the earliest incubators in academia with a potential to create startups focussing on economic growth, strategic value and social relevance. It gives prototyping grants, provides incubation support to tech startups and also runs accelerator programs in corporate partnership.

SINE has been selected as “Centre of Excellence” by Department of Science and Technology (DST), GOI with funding support to scale up its activities. It has also been approved Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC) support under the aegis of Department of Bio Technology (DBT) to set up a Bio incubator ‘BioNEST’ to support the bio-med-tech startups.
