For entrepreneurs Dr Kavitha Sairam (36) and Mr Anant Raheja (28), the entrepreneurial journey was more incidental than a planned one.

The duo founded FIB-SOL Life Technologies in 2013 at IIT-Madras business incubator while pursuing their PhDs.

"We aim to make farming profitable," says Dr Kavitha. "The current state of farming in the country has left individual and corporate farms high and dry, demanding better inputs."

Dr Kavitha has a PhD in fungal stress biology, which helped her develop stabilizing formulations for FIB-SOL's agro-inputs.

At the moment, Mr Anant is awaiting his PhD, and has a rich research experience in developing polymeric nanomaterials, which forms the basis of platform technology developed at FIB-SOL.
