Tata Elxsi's incub@TE mentors AI healthcare startup 'Niramai'
By: Tata Elxsi
Niramai Health Analytix Pvt. Ltd is a Bangalore based startup with a mission to create a universal cancer screening method that can save lives by detecting breast cancer at an early stage. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women today. Early detection is the key to survival. Niramai is a pioneer of a new patent-pending technology called Thermalytix that can remove technological, logistical, and cultural barriers that hinder breast cancer screening among women today.
The startup's solution uses artificial intelligence to address effectively issues with thermography. The company's goal is to create an innovative cancer screening method that can save lives by detecting cancer at an early stage, through solutions that are accurate, automated, affordable, and accessible to all. The product is expected to be launched in mid-2017, starting with a few locations in Bangalore.
Tata Elxsi's Incub@TE is helping Niramai through key consultations from Tata Elxsi in-house professionals, mentorship, access to service providers, and establishing key connections with people/organizations of interest. Furthermore, with Tata Elxsi's help, the startup has been able to interact with leading design thinkers, technologists, business leaders and peer entrepreneurs and learn from their experiences. The mentoring and logistical support provided by Tata Elxsi has allowed Niramai to focus entirely on the execution, providing them with an environment that has helped them improve their entrepreneurial thinking and get clarity on the go-to-market.
Speaking on onboarding Niramai on Incub@TE, Mr. Rajesh Kumar, Vice President - Strategic Initiatives, Tata Elxsi said, "Many startups have innovative solutions, and require some help in infrastructure, mentoring and creating market visibility. Incub@TE is a platform that helps startups create sustainable businesses, by providing them with the necessary facilities such as above. Use of Emerging Technologies in healthcare is starting to gain momentum in India, and helping startups that are in line with these developments is a great opportunity for us. It has been a great pleasure working with Niramai, and we look forward to the remaining months of working together."
Dr. Geetha Manjunath and Ms. Nidhi Mathur, co-founders of Niramai Health Analytix say, "Being women, we understand the sensitivities and social-cultural aspects of breast cancer screening. This has to lead us to make our solution privacy-sensitive, in a unique way that removes the psychological burden of voluntarily opting for early screening as a preventive measure. Tata Elxsi is one of the companies that has helped us bring our vision to reality. We are happy to be a part of Incub@TE and value the mentorship that Tata Elxsi has provided to our products/services."
Companies that have previously been part of Tata Elxsi's incub@TE program are Sismatik Solutions and Street Smart Mobile Technologies.
