About Us

IncMantra is a vibrant startup ecosystem that physically and virtually “incubates” early stage startups at the concept, prototype or MVP (Minimum Viable Product) stage, and helps them grow and scale rapidly. It is primarily an intensive, 12 month, fully residential, startup program which includes an entire suite of resources like a global network of top notch mentors and marquee investors (HNIs and VCs), co working spaces enabled with the latest technology and infrastructure, regular startup related webinars and workshops, and access to heavily discounted services that help build a startup including IT, IPR, HR, PR, marketing, accounting, tax and legal, etc.

Once the incubated startups reach a certain level of growth, IncMantra helps them and / or outside startups in the growth stage “accelerate” to the next level and aggressively expand domestically pan India as well as internationally.

We are also an end to end, full spectrum, blockchain advisory and consulting services firm. We help startups, and mid to large corporates develop, implement, integrate and maintain blockchain related products and web services. We also provide long term assistance, support and advice on related technology and operational matters. We are blockchain agnostic and are experienced working with many blockchain fabrics including the Ethereum, Hyperledger, Ripple, etc. We are also experienced working with many blockchain development APIs, software frameworks, databases, and devOps tools for testing and agile development.
