Nasscom business accelerator to open at Kochi Infopark

The National Association of Software and Services Companies’ (Nasscom) third business incubator-cum-accelerator will be inaugurated at the Infopark in Kochi on Saturday by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, a statement said.

The other two are at Bengaluru and Kolkata.

“It will be an incubation facility where companies like Google, Microsoft and IBM will share their expertise in the technology field with the startups. Also, the facility will be a platform for the startups to achieve global exposure,” said Infopark CEO Hrishikesh Nair.

The 6,500-sqft facility will provide a central, well-connected, plug-and-play working space for start-ups to launch their operations besides giving one-on-one mentorship.

It will also serve as Nasscom’s regional centre in the state.
