ABOUT US

ARTILAB Foundation

Established in 2017, ARTILAB Foundation is a young and dynamic social sector organisation, dedicated towards fostering accessible innovation in the disability sector.

We launched our flagship incubation programme in 2017 to support social enterprise startups in the assistive tech and rehab space. To better support innovation, we are setting up a universal ecosystem comprising centres of excellence for design, testing and innovation, apart from an education and research facility.

Within the first five years of our launch, we are looking to impact 20,000 lives across India and beyond through significant corporate, government, non-profit and educational collaborations.
