IPR and Innovation

The efforts of few MS (Entrepreneurship) students have resulted in patents filed for products developed by the students. Special mention is made of the contribution of Mr Balaraju, who has filed 4 patents based out of his work at IIT Madras.

MS (Entrepreneurship) students have started companies during/after their course at IIT Madras. The following companies have been started by the MS (Entrepreneurship) students:

  • Bodhbridge Educational Services (P) Ltd.
  • Ecologin (Tourism services)
  • Zynetech (provides GPS solutions)
  • R F Wave Technologies (RF and microwave devices)
These companies have been incubated by CTiDES (Cell for Technology Innovation, Development and Entrepreneurship Support) IIT Madras. Located in the space provided by DoMS, they move to either the research park of IIT Madras or to their own premises after reaching a level of sustainability.
