About the Programme

  • About the Programme

The Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIR) programme at Anant National University acknowledges the void in the Indian startup arena in affordable housing, building construction, research, real estate, design and prop tech spaces and seeks to offer a solution.

Most accelerator programmes popularly run by venture capitalist firms around the world offer business and operational support but miss out on providing a key requirement — access to subject matter experts, qualified manpower in the form of interns and workshop infrastructure — especially in the real estate space. Anant National University’s EIR programme is a unique and first of its kind structured support programme being made available to real estate, building sciences, design startups. The building sciences and real estate space are unique due to them requiring large amounts of capital and having long gestation periods.

The programme is best suited for Entrepreneurs that need and can leverage the physical infrastructure such as the state of the art Makerspace, library, working spaces, extensive industry knowledge and the pool of faculty, researchers, and students available at Anant National University. Each year 3 chosen Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to work with students, faculty and a Board of Mentors from the industry to refine their products and services and to take them to market. Entrepreneurs will have access to one of the best Makerspaces in the country in addition to office space and accommodation on Anant National University’s campus. The EIR programme has partnered with the Brigade REAP accelerator, to help the participants gain access to Brigade’s extensive network, ecosystem and funding options, via 1 on 1 mentorship sessions and workshops.
