Startups Club is a community that mentors budding and established entrepreneurs during their infancy (0-3 years old), and serves as an incubator and an accelerator for startups. SC enables connections, collaboration, funding and networking in the startup ecosystem, for young start-ups ranging from Concept to Growth stage.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Salma Moosa, Managing Director & Founder of Startups Club said, “Disruptive innovation is the order of the day, and these startups are on the right path of creating products and are both unique in their own fields of expertise. It was a mutual learning curve and a memorable experience having both Vicara and Renaura under the Incuration program of Startups Club”.

Angel investor, Mr. Mahesh Bhalla said, “As an investor, I am on the lookout for path-breaking ideas, and both Vicara and Renaura have delivered in terms of innovation. I am very excited to partake in these ventures and I’m looking forward to see where the future takes us.”

Vicara, founded by Abhishek Satish and Adarsh Warrier, seeks to enhance humanity by creating advancements in wearable technology that augment human computer interface. Their latest product – “Kai” – is a piece of wearable technology that tracks finger and hand gestures to host a set of activities in any environment. The product is targeted at creative professionals as it functions best as a productivity innovation tool.

“For us, the best part of working with Startups Club was that we were asked all the right question by experienced professionals, and that helped us focus on what is important to our customers” said, Adarsh Warrier, Co-Founder, Vicara.

Renaura – a research and formulation company in the beauty, personal care and wellness domain, with water solubility as the key factor. It has developed a hard water shampoo called “Iluvia” to potentially remove the mineral deposit to soften human hair. Renaura is founded by Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) alumnus Nishant Gupta and Palash Pandey.

“While we were still refining this idea, we were introduced to Startups Club. Working with Startups Club has given us the confidence and resources to take it to the next level”, said Nishant Gupta, Co-founder, Renaura.

Vicara and Renaura have been funded and developed with the help of the SCINcurator platform of Startups Club.
