IIT Madras Incubation Cell along with TiE Chennai had organised a one-day exhibition today – Chennai Demo Day, a marketplace for businesses. The venue was the spacious IIT Madras Research Park, Taramani.

For the last few years, IIT Madras has been successfully incubating startups in the areas of rural, social and technology. Today, the public and investor community got a chance to see many of these companies with their solutions for clean energy, healthcare, education, mobility and others. I enjoyed attending the pitch sessions and the exhibition – a good initiative that will be of immense benefit to the founders.
