The Ramaiah Technology Business Incubator (RTBI) was established in 2018 through the Indian Trusts Act 1882 with the registration number YPR‑4 – 0031-2017 – 18 (dated 22-01-2018).
Set up by the Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences, RTBI aims to promote a culture of entrepreneurship among students, faculty members, and interested citizens. The not-for-profit entity provides incubation services to novel and selected technology start-ups working in sectors including — but not limited to — IoT, ESDM, Robotics, and Intelligent Systems.
The Incubator’s 7000 sq ft facility in the University’s Peenya Campus is outfitted with a range of electronic hardware, software, and mechanical and manufacturing testing equipment. In addition to the cutting-edge facilities and equipment of RTBI, Incubatees can make use of RUAS’s facilities (such as laboratories, libraries, training centres, techno centre, and intellectual expertise) at a nominal cost. Incubatees are also provided with accelerator facilities and are mentored on their projects with technical and business training as well as financial advice.
RTBI aims to partner with progressive organisations and leverage technology development and commercialisation to accelerate the economic development of the state and the country.
