Cultivating research, entrepreneurship, and excellence

IKP began its journey as India’s first Life Sciences Park in 1999 in Hyderabad's Genome Valley, primarily focusing on providing infrastructure services. Our 200-acre campus, co-locating global MNCs, corporations, and start-ups with shared labs, working spaces, and analytical facilities formed the blueprint for a life sciences innovation ecosystem in India.

Over the years, we’ve evolved into a go-to incubator: operating in Hyderabad and Bangalore, offering incubation and innovation services across diverse sectors, including life sciences and biotech, agriculture and agri tech, digital health and medical devices, energy and climate change, engineering, one health, and others.

Our commitment to the evolving needs of the innovation ecosystem is strengthened by our adaptability and vision. To further our efforts, we collaborate with various stakeholders, including startups, corporations, academic innovators, government institutions, research entities, foundations, and financial organizations.

As a non-profit organization, we maintain a triple-bottom-line approach, prioritizing long-term value and impact. With a focus on the well-being of the planet, we spearhead initiatives that drive positive change and innovation for a brighter future.
