USP's

Two Decades of Excellence in Entrepreneurship

The journey of SIIC, at IIT Kanpur, began when a team of creative visionaries came together to build an ecosystem with an objective to build with a purpose. From then to now, the very dynamic SIIC continues to evolve and grow just like another startup!.

SIIC existed when incubation was in its infancy, seed-funding did not exist, mentorship was neither easily available nor popular. A bunch of misfits with an out-of-the-box vision - we thought, why not overcome the obstacles that we are facing by helping others overcome them too? Seed-funding did not exist.

Our journey of growth has been a challenging one, with myriad lessons along the way. We are a group of thinkers and problem-solvers, continuously monitoring startups needs.
