Indigram Labs Foundation


So far journey of Indigram Labs Foundation

Indigram Labs Foundation (ILF) has made some impressive strides since its humble beginning in 2015. Founded as a technology business incubator under section 8 (Not for Profit Company) of companies act 2013, Indigram Labs is supported by National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board (NSTEDB), Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.

Indigram Labs is committed to foster and nurture viable business ideas in the fields of Agriculture, Food Processing, Renewable Energy and Rural Healthcare. Till date we have touched the lives of around 2,00,000+ farmers. We believe that there is no dearth of ideas but mentoring, an initial push which will make the difference between an unfulfilled dream and a flourishing business. We create an entrepreneurial ecosystem for individuals with creative minds and ideas with potential to grow full – fledged business enterprises which can touch & transform rural lives. To date, ILF has

1. Helped 20+ nascent stage ventures to develop into a sustainable business
2. Sustained more than 500 employment opportunities all across the country.
3. Established an entrepreneurial ecosystem with 55 mentors, 35 investors, 25 Institutional and organizational collaborations and many more to add.

ILF targets to incubate 100 starts ups in next 5 years through the process of consulting, mentoring, prototype creation, leveraging technology tie ups and access to platforms that yield the stated results, other business management (legal & secretarial, office space) services and also funding for them. These enterprises are selected on the basis of power of the idea, its business model, potential to scale up and social impact apart from motivation that drives the entrepreneurs.

We at Indigram Labs Foundation believe that entrepreneurs have a unique opportunity to make positive global change while remaining profitable. They have the power to change lives and livelihoods in the communities and the country. We see them as the conduit for real change and development – a ripple effect that begins with the business and moves into the community at the grassroots level.

From the Desk of Founder

I am proud to present the second issue of the Newsletter of Indigram Labs Foundation (ILF) and hope to highlight the work done by the extended ILF family. Our Newsletter is not just about basking in our past achievements, but to keep our incubatees, partners, sponsors and supporters informed about the activities of ILF. In the past years we have created an entrepreneurial mini-ecosystem within our sectoral focus areas with 28 incubated companies, 47 innovators, 55 mentors, 35 investors and several national & international collaborations with institutions and organizations like IARI, CFTRI, Villgro, Techtown Detroit, Berkeley SKYDECK, TERRA and many more. ILF has sustained more than 500 employment opportunities across the country. Our success is a function of the efforts of our team, partners and the talented entrepreneurs in the incubation program. We would like to express our gratitude to our honorable board and advisory board members who generously volunteer their time and wisdom toward ensuring the success of both ILF and the incubatees we serve. This brief reviews the available precedents about a variety of diverse agribusiness development interventions to examine the potential for agribusiness investment clusters, special economic zones (SEZs) and how the ILF Ecosystem could contribute to the growth of smallholder incomes, crop yields, and other development goals.
