MSMF TBI team in partnership has been working steadfast to ensure a new batch of start-ups are inaugurated. Post the new BiONEST facility’s inauguration at the Narayana Health City on Dec 15, 2020, we waited for the right time to move in residents to our facility.
The teams at MSMF and Villgro ran a campaign to call for applications for the BioNest Programme and the annual event iPitch starting September 2020. Below are the highlights of the effort:
- Received 264 applications from various healthtech start-ups
- The first round of screening shortlisted to 52 start-ups
- The second round shortlist 25 start-ups and conducted virtual pitch sessions – close to 15 mentors participated in the effort, including business, clinicians, and scientist mentors
- The final batch of six was selected for the incubation program
The event was attended by senior management of MSMF, clinician mentors, senior doctors, and entrepreneurs. The session aimed at the entrepreneurs demonstrating their innovations to the attendees and interact with the guests to receive valuable inputs and suggestions from the fraternity.
