Experience of a mentee as told by Abhijit Nath, Co-founder, Pekhansa Pvt. Ltd.

“It was a great experience meeting with Dr Ashok Iyengar. We gained a lot of knowledge in the field of food processing & associated equipments. He gave us the total recipe for the preparation of panipuri in a very hygienic way. Today he taught us two methods of preparing panipuri one with extrusion and fusion method and the other with the ordinary method which can also extend the shelf life. He shared inputs about the varieties of wheat flour that we could use and taught us methods to control moisture and reduce the starch content in the wheat flour and maida apart from suggesting purchase of few critical equipments for our project.”

Access to Talent

Incubatees can hire student interns and also get access to manpower from VITTBI's network.
