SINE — the incubator at IIT Mumbai, seems to have made better progress than a couple of other initiatives I have seen around. The core strength seems to be the ability to merge institutes’ strengths in technology (through students and faculty members) with experience from industry. A fair number of startups seem to involve experienced operational people. This is unlike some other incubators I have seen which tend to (either formally or informally) limit the participation to students and faculty alone.
