Intel's Maker Lab to encourage entrepreneurial talent

Posted by Vivek Nama on December 14th 2016

 Intel’s Indian subsidiary set up the Maker Lab at its campus in  January to help start-ups accelerate their hardware and systems for innovating products and solutions using its infrastructure, technology, tools and mentorship support. 

The start-ups use the labs for projects spanning education, sports, health, agriculture, BFSI (banking, financial services and insurance), and e-governance across IoT (Internet of Things), cloud etc. As part of this, the lab has supported seven start-ups incubated by the DST of the Indian government under the Intel’s ‘Innovate for Digital India’ challenge.
 
Maker Lab focuses on innovation, systems design and entrepreneurship in India and aims to act as a catalyst. It has associated with various programs to foster innovation and making the government’s Digital India vision a reality.
 
The company is collaborating with the government to encourage entrepreneurial and innovation talent as a not-for-profit initiative and is independent of its own research and development activities in India.
