SEED SUPPORT

Seed Support System (SSS) For Start-Ups In Incubators

Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India provides financial assistance to STEPs and TBIs for the much needed early stage financial assistance to be provided to deserving ideas and technologies. It helps the young firms to survive and grow by providing specialized support services during the critical period of a business venture i.e. the start-up phase. This would enable some of these innovative ideas/technologies to graduate to a level where they can then be fit for seeking normal lending commercial banks /FI’s route in their way to the successful commercialization process. Thus the proposed assistance is positioned to act as a bridge between development and commercialization of technologies.
