Axilor Labs helps innovators and scientists curate their ideas into businesses with a focus on the life sciences. We join them to create commercially viable offerings, build teams, set up a matrix-driven organization and get them ready for next round investments. The three key aspects in which Axilor Lab helps innovators are:
You have an idea and have been able to establish scientific validity. What next?
You believe in your innovation but may or may not be able to commit yourself full-time to it. No one will invest in a company without full-time founder, right? Wrong.
Grants are great way of supporting fundamental research. But how to build business and find partner who shares commercialization risk and provides the investment for investment in building business?
We believe deep science based ideas don’t fit in traditional VC framework of evaluation and need a different structure to succeed:
Through our combined knowledge and resource pool, the platform will create a conducive environment for insights to translate into ideas which we can grow into successful businesses together.
Over the last six years, we have run one of the most successful accelerator programs in the country and evaluated 1,000+ ideas every year. The scale and outcome approach of our program has given us a vantage point to identify gaps and big problem areas. Being in the thick of mentoring and fundraising with our startups, we have built a strong network to match the skill and expertise needed by a startup at the right time. We will sharply identify problem areas that are worth solving and unlock go-to-market channels through which businesses can then scale up.
We are passionate about supporting home-grown IP-based startups. Our founders have collectively supported research with 500 Cr worth of grant till date and Axilor has funded 7 out of top 10 IP based HealthTech startups in India. We want to take it a step further and support research by providing a path to make meaningful impact from research outcomes.
India spends ~1.5% of its gross domestic product on healthcare. It is neither feasible nor adequate to increase this spend. Innovation is the only way to improve health outcomes.
Further, this sector requires a very deep understanding of the problem and the context. This implies a great need to facilitate collaboration.
And, most importantly, innovations in health will have the most impact. About a fifth of all deaths worldwide occur in India. The Non-Communicable Diseases like Cardiovascular diseases, Cancer, Chronic Respiratory Diseases, Diabetes, etc. are estimated to account for around 60% of all deaths.
We invite innovators and/or entrepreneurs with strong research mindset and pedigree to get in touch with us and jointly explore how we can help them translate their research ideas into successful businesses.
