In collaboration with Indigram Labs Foundation, an Indian Society of Agribusiness Professionals supported by NSTEDB, Department of Science & Technology (DST), Nexus will organize a pitch session for agri-startups in the agri-IOT & agri-artificial intelligence space on 5th January, 2018. It will be a great platform to develop strategic relationship within the agricultural sector and for recruiting startups for our pre-incubation program.

Indigram Labs (ILF) launched a business plan challenge in December for startups in the agri-IOT & agri-artificial intelligence space to support innovative ideas in the agriculture sector. From the total application received only 10 innovative startups with a feasible and scalable business plan will be selected to pitch in front of the jury which will be a mix of experienced industry leaders and experts from the ecosystem. Selected participants will be given preference for incubation at ILF and a chance to win cash prize of Rs. 100,000.

Indigram Labs Foundation was set up in Jan 2015 as a business incubator with the aim of developing startups in the agribusiness, technology, education, and health care domains that have potential to grow full-fledged business enterprises which can touch and transform rural lives. ILF selects the enterprises on the basis of the viability of the idea, its business model, potential to scale up and social impact apart from motivation that drives the entrepreneurs.
