BENGALURU TECH EXCHANGE (BTE)

Bengaluru Tech Exchange (BTE) is a first-of-its-kind platform which encourages premier research institutes of India to exhibit, present and conduct one-on-one meetings with industry, Startups & investors to accelerate the Lab-to-Market journey of their potential innovations. This initiative is aimed at recognising disruptive research ideas and helping them become disruptive technologies that can venture the market.

As India continues on a sustained growth trajectory, the need for a robust R&D ecosystem coupled with an increased investment both by the private sector and the government in R&D, gains significance.

The Indian government has been very proactive in formulating several support programmes and acknowledging the importance of R&D. However, lucrative economic growth in the R&D sector cannot be achieved without the private sector enhancing its investments in technology development. Access to technical competencies, young talent pool, cost savings, proactive government support and presence of an indigenous market are some of the significant factors attracting global companies to expand their R&D and production operations in India.

India has invested in fundamental research as well as translational research across various streams of science and technology under leading research Institutions and Departments like CSIR, ICMR, ICAR, DST, DBT, ISRO, DRDO, DAE and more, propelling its growth as a knowledge-centric destination.

Over one million scientists spread over 265+ national research laboratories across the country, are conducting their cutting edge research and developing revolutionary innovations. Much of this research shows impressive potential towards becoming a commercially valuable product or service. To tap this potential and to encourage investments into their growth, Bengaluru Tech Summit conducts the Tech Exchange Programme as part of its 3-day technology extravaganza.
