Qualcomm India has signed a technical bilateral cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology(MeitY) Startup Hub (MSH) to bring its Qualcomm Design in India Challenge (QDIC) program to MSH-supported startups.

Qualcomm Design in India Challenge, begun in 2016, supports early stage start-ups in inventing useful hardware product designs. The programme offers prize money, access to software and hardware design tools and labs, technical support, among others.

The bilateral cooperation will also provide startups access to peers working on similar societal challenges across the world.

“The resources offered by Qualcomm India will extend this benefit to larger ecosystem of Indian startups. Qualcomm’s expertise in the area, ability to provide an access to various stakeholders relevant to startups and a dedicated lab with state-of-the-art equipment to startups selected to be part of Qualcomm Design in India Challenge make them an ideal partner of choice for this collaboration,” said Ajay Sawhney, Secretary, MeitY.
