Ojas MedTech BioNest is an incubator for companies building products at the intersection of technology and medicine in areas such as disease prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, and wellness. The focus of this incubator reflects the massive changes that are happening in healthcare today. As consumers look for a more accurate diagnosis, better predictions of disease, precision medicine, and improved health outcomes, current technologies need to leapfrog current capabilities and innovators need to imagine vastly different ways of practicing medicine. Ojas welcomes entrepreneurs working on futuristic, bold and innovative ideas harnessing digital technologies in healthcare practice.
Ojas is funded by BIRAC under its BioNest scheme.
Ojas offers entrepreneurs exciting new ways to convert ideas to products through three different formats for incubation.
Got an idea that can change the world? Join our early stage product incubation program- build your MVP, meet customers for validation, pivot for better solution and repeat.
Have you fixed your customer acquisition strategies? Then it is time for you to convert your MVP into a world class product and hit the market with a bang. Don’t forget your investor decks 😉

Early-Stage startups can access the Maker’s/Fabrication facilities for prototype development. Maker’s Lab is equipped with 3-D printers, Laser Cutting Machines, GPU, Laser Welding Machine, CNC Machines, PCB Prototyping Machine, Digital Multimeter, Microscopic Camera, Soldering Machine etc.
We recognize that working in the MedTech space requires expertise from multiple disciplines. At Ojas, entrepreneurs can work with IIIT faculty, who have deep expertise in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, signal processing, natural language processing, and data analytics. We can help you figure out the right model of collaboration. If the expertise is not available within the institutions, we can connect you to incubators and academic institutions in our network.
Do you have an idea that you have already prototyped? If you are wondering how to take it to market, enroll in our Acceleration program. You will learn the fundamentals of Business Strategy, Go-to-Market Strategies, Product Development, Scaling your business etc.. The programme also offers seed funding up to 25 lakhs and access to IIIT-H’s research labs.
T-Health cafes: Our once-a-month sessions focus on special topics such as protecting intellectual property, accessing data, designing validation studies, scaling up, interpreting a term sheet etc. A speaker with expertise in the topic is invited to an interactive session with incubatees.
An opportunity for the startup’s founders to better understand the customers need/problem will be provided through a 2-Day or 5-Day immersion sessions at different hospitals with the help of partnered hospitals.
Grant writing: The number of Grant opportunities available to entrepreneurs has expanded greatly in the last few years. But most entrepreneurs struggle to get to their first Grant. Knowing how to articulate your story in a clear and credible manner is an art. At Ojas, you can take advantage of our one-on-one sessions and grant writing clinics to make sure your pitch is compelling.
Ecosystem: Creating a good product is about iterative cycles of testing and modifying your design. For MEDTECH entrepreneurs this can be a challenge as access to the right resources is not easy. At Ojas, we can connect you to a rich ecosystem of clinicians, researchers, and academics to accelerate the product development cycle.
