Drug major AstraZeneca has joined hands with the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) IoT Centre of Excellence to set up an accelerator programme to support Indian start-ups for developing innovative solutions to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) care in India.
AstraZeneca and NASSCOM will incubate start-ups in bringing new concepts that can help in the management of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The two organizations have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to start an incubation centre in Bengaluru, recently.
Start-ups will have access to NASSCOM’s innovation labs, development resources, cloud services and mentoring support, including the opportunity to showcase their innovations in national and global platforms. This opportunity will be open for companies or individuals who are working in therapeutic areas like diabetes, cardiovascular, cancer and respiratory medicine.
