The complex set up over an area of 1.80 lakh sq ft within the Technology Innovation Zone (TIZ) at Kalamassery would provide top quality infrastructure for incubation and acceleration, a release from the mission said here Monday.

It said the complex was the largest of its kind in the country.

It would among others house a "Maker Village"; BRINC, the country's first international accelerator for hardware startups, BRIC, an incubator dedicated for developing solutions for cancer diagnosis care, and a centre of excellence set up by industry majors like UNITY and CERA.

Once fully developed into a full-fledged campus having over half-a-million sq ft built up area, TIZ would become the largest Work-Live-Play space exclusively dedicated to startups in the country, the release said.

Over a 100 startup companies in various stages of growth were already operating in the three incubators functioning within the facility.
