The startups are mentored and guided by industry experts from both the domestic and international startup ecosystem. Selected startups will have the opportunity to conduct a paid proof-of-concept (PoC) with Maruti Suzuki.

The company also announced the five winners – mSense, automaxis and Keploy, AngelTech Logistics and AutoWiz – from Cohort 6. The top three entities – mSense, automaxis and Keploy – will undertake a paid PoC with Maruti.
