The startups applying on the platform and selecting AIC-RNTU as their preferred incubation centre will undergo a three-round screening process comprised of Internal Committee Review followed by SME's feedback, and Final Presentation in front of Incubator Seed Management Committee (ISMC) Members.

The Startups are evaluated by ISMC members on pre-set parameters. Startups matching all the selection criteria are selected for funding.
