ASPIRE envisions to create an inclusive and enabling resource platform for budding entrepreneurs in diverse science and technology fields. Its mission statement is to enhance and deepen the incubation activities and knowledge enterprise initiatives at UoH and thereby create a vibrant entrepreneurial eco-system on the campus. Currently, there are 3 incubation centres (ICs) functioning under ASPIRE, i.e., ASPIRE-BioNEST, ASPIRE-TBI, and ASPIRE TIDE, providing incubation support in the areas of Life Sciences, Pharma & chemistry as well as materials and IT & Electronics, respectively.  TBI was established with the support of DST, TIDE supported by DietY and the BioNEST was established with support from BIRAC/DBT. These ICs are equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and necessary instrumentation. The ICs are spread over 50000 sqft, with excellent infrastructure and plug-and-play state-of-the-art lab suites.  Since the beginning, the ICs together have supported more than 80 start-ups and helped them to translate their ideas into technologies.


ASPIRE-BioNEST was inaugurated on National Science Day, 28th February 2018 by distinguished Biotechnologist Prof. G. Padmanaban of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore – who applauded it “By Far, The Best Bio-incubator”. The vision of ASPIRE-BioNEST is to create a world-class entrepreneurial ecosystem at the University of Hyderabad to become the only destination for technology-based start-ups in Life sciences. Currently, ASPIRE-BioNEST is known for its great infrastructure, including the state-of-the-art instrumentation for complete upstream and downstream processing of Biotechnology products. ASPIRE-BioNEST nurtures innovation and entrepreneurship in scaling technologies of Agriculture, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, and allied areas. ASPIRE-BioNEST is a deep science incubator with a plug-and-play laboratory space equipped with modern instrumentation to perform any research in Life sciences. To support our start-ups working on COVID-19, and also keeping the emergency situation in mind, ASPIRE BioNEST has created a new BSL2 facility.
