The Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India runs a very interesting programme aimed at technology entrepreneurs called PRISM.
Via PRISM's Technopreneur Promotion Programme (TePP), DSIR offers grants for individual innovators and budding entrepreneurs to demonstrate proof of concept and/or prototypes of novel ideas.
Venture Center was an outreach center for TePP between Jan 2011 and March 2012. Due to policy changes at DSIT, it is currently unclear if Venture Center would continue to remain an outreach center.
Interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to visit the DSIR’s website for latest details.
