Launched in 2017, Delhi-based startup Nanoclean began its journey by manufacturing nasal filters to tackle air pollution. Pivoting to face masks seemed a natural progression amidst COVID-19 and the startup has now garnered a government grant of Rs 1.3 crore.
Launched in early 2017, Nanoclean was founded by IIT-Delhi alumni Prateek Sharma, Tushar Vyas, and Jatin Kewlani.
In 2017, it won the Startup National Award conferred by the President of India. The startup also has multiple grants on its name from the Government of India, including the Department of Science and Technology, and a joint grant with IIT-Delhi from the Ministry of Human Resource Development.
