Maruti to mentor five startups to develop automotive technology

MUMBAI: Maruti Suzuki, which makes one in every two cars sold in the country, announced mentorship for five startups in the automotive space as part of its Mobility & Automobile Innovation Lab (MAIL) program.

The five startups – Enmovil, Docketrun, Eyedentify, Xane, and SenseGiz – underwent a three-month-long acceleration program where they were mentored by domain experts and given access to Maruti Suzuki’s facilities and data to fine-tune their business model, the company said.

Following a presentation, the top three startups, SenseGiz, Xane, and Eyedentify, have been awarded sponsorship for developing the proof-of-concept with Maruti Suzuki. The other two startups will also be assisted in developing their proof-of-concept, the company said.
