In the first quarter of 2022-23, it has been phenomenal for C-CAMP in terms of funds raised (70+ Million USD) by a few of our portfolio deep science startups. Such a high investment in the biotech sector has been unheard of. The seven startups Bugworks, Sea6 Energy, String Bio, Eyestem, Pandorum, Achira and Zumutor have been supported by C-CAMP since a decade. Such high investments for first-in-class high-risk technologies is an early indication of investor interest and could be a defining moment for the future of science-led entrepreneurships in India and beyond.
To celebrate such a success, we organized a press discussion with our CEO-Director Dr Taslimarif Saiyed and Founder-CEOs of these startups- Bugworks, Sea6 Energy, String Bio, Eyestem, Achira, Pandorum and Zumutor
