Maker Village to groom start-ups of global standards

Ties up with US multinational; project to be completed in 6 months
Maker Village has tied up with Qualcomm to groom start-ups of international standards, charting out a four-phase project to be completed in the coming six months.

The collaboration is being initiated following a bilateral agreement between the semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology seven weeks ago, said a press release here.

Kochi’s Maker Village is the first beneficiary of the pact signed in New Delhi early last month. The agreement aims at giving start-ups access to peers working on similar societal challenges across the world. A six-member Qualcomm delegation visited Maker Village as part of the initiative.
Under the project, Qualcomm India will support 15 start-ups. The beneficiaries belong to three categories: start-ups by college students, those incubated by Maker Village, and groups functioning as industrial units. Each category will have five start-ups.

Qualcomm will extend support to start-ups in a wide range of subjects including ideation, model, product, intellectual property rights, geographical indication, and marketing. Experts in each area will guide the start-ups at Maker Village. When the project gets over in February next year, Kerala will have at least five start-ups of global standard, according to senior functionaries.
