The iTIC incubator will invest more than Rs 1.7 crore in high-tech startups. Currently, six of the nine starts have a prototype ready. These include Learn and Empower, which is working to create an accessible game-based learning platform for children with hearing loss; LiqSure Systems, which builds a water purification system using the principle of hydrodynamic cavitation for the treatment of gray water; Milatronics, which builds an automated feeding system for aquaculturists; Pranahita Biotrinics Develops Low-Cost AI-Powered Test Kits for Covid and Other Viruses; Eaffocare works on regenerating products for gum treatments and periodontists.
iTIC is also investing in three start-ups in the “proof of concept” phase: Humus Biosystems, which works on water treatment using microbes and biomaterials; Raibo Systems, which is working on the development of surgical assistance robots; and Sridevi Machinery, which is building an automated electric weeder.
