Innovation is name of the game. And in today’s day and age, young minds think out-of-the-box to germinate proof-of-concept science and technology ideas. Scientific community and start-up inventors often wish to step out of bootstrap mode into a healthier self-sustaining one with little funding help to bring them to market. US companies can partner with Indian companies to avail opportunities to develop their creative concepts evolving from incubation to maturity.
The governments of the United States of America and India, through an inter-governmental agreement, jointly established the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) http://iusstf.org/ in 2000 as an autonomous organization in India. Its mission is to promote science and technology (S&T) innovation and entrepreneurship collaborations between the United States and India through efforts such as bilateral research centers, joint projects, academic, and industry exchanges, joint workshops, and training programs in basic and applied sciences.
