About Us

BIL – Ryerson Technology Startup Incubator Foundation (BRTSIF) is a not-for-profit Start-up Ecosystem provider with a mandate to promote startups and support the Government of India’s vision for entrepreneurship development and a culture of innovation. It is a joint venture between BSE Institute Ltd., Mumbai, Ryerson University, Toronto and Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.

Established in 2016, empoWer is India’s 1st tech accelerator for women entrepreneurs. We started with a hypothesis, in 2016, that it is a program/ecosystem much needed for women entrepreneurs; and the response received in the form of applications from across India, and repeated feedback from many quarters to expand the cohort size, or hosting multiple cohorts in the year was a major validation for us.
