Technology business incubators are a powerful economic development tool, which promotes growth through innovation, and application of technology, support economic development strategies for small business development, and encourage growth from within local economies, while also providing a mechanism for technology transfer. The Technology Business Incubators would primarily focus on those technologies, which needs support for commercialization and further proliferation. These can act as a growth driver in the low-end spectrum of the incubation eco-system. The components under the program will include mentoring support in business and technology plans, networking of business resources, entrepreneurship cum skill development, identification of appropriate technology, hands on experience on Projects, Projects/ Products selection, project report preparation, credit facilitation, seed capital assistance, marketing assistance, professional assistance to make the enterprise successful and achieve higher growth.
