YNOS Venture Engine’, a platform created by a professor at IIT Madras, will help start-ups reach incubators at the Indian institutes. It will catalyse deep technology start-ups and adoption of technology and Innovation in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Faculty members from various institutes would be a part of the YNOS Venture Engine; this would enable entrepreneurs across India and globally, to figure out which faculty member(s) they would like to work. Once an entrepreneur expresses their interest to interact with a faculty, the interaction would be facilitated by YNOS.
A total of 128 faculty members from IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, IIIT Bangalore, BITS Pilani, IIT Hyderabad, IITDM Kanchipuram, IIT Ropar, IIT Mandi, IIT Palakkad, NIT Trichy, NIT Warangal and NIT Raipur have so far joined hands in this initiative.
