By participating in this program, the startup will have access to structured and curated material, real-life business case study-based facilitated sessions, access to experts and mentors, and one-year support.

DRISHTI 3.0, a one-year incubation program for business mentoring in Tech-startups (supported by the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India).
It works in two phases. First phase: 2-month business mentoring. The selected innovators become a part of our cohort for 2- months training and mentoring with experts from various domains. The aim of this engagement is to build the capacity, expand business understanding, and encourage collaborations between the participating startups.

Second phase: 1 – year incubation program
After the training and mentoring program, the startups are incubated at FIED, for a year wherein their progress is continuously assessed and supported.
