Atal Incubation Centre

Atal Incubation Centre (AIC) was set up at Shiv Nadar University with the support of Atal Innovation Mission NITI Aayog to serve as an active catalyst for the development of promising entrepreneurs. It is a step to assist budding entrepreneurs in their start-up journey and to support the developing startup ecosystem in India.

AIC has the advantage of access to resources of engineering, natural science, humanities, and management schools of the university. Specialized labs and highly qualified faculty are available to guide start-ups in their technical and business endeavors. We have highly qualified mentors to support Incubatees.

AIC is sector agnostic and welcomes start-ups from diverse fields.

AIC’s incubation program is an intensive business development program that supports founders and helps them turn their ideas into successful businesses. The support comes in a form of mentorship, office space, and some starting capital (seed money).

These incubation centers would support and encourage innovative technology-based start-ups that have an application and/or impact in the core sectors of the economy. The incubation centers would provide the start-ups with necessary guidance, tech support, infrastructure, access to investors, networking, and facilitating a host of other resources that may be required for the start-up to survive and scale.
