It isn’t just the large players and corporations or the exciting startups that are central to the economy of the future. Infact, between these two poles, the large and significant sea of manufacturing, medium sized and smaller enterprises lie. Here there is already a degree of competence in manufacturing, distribution, marketing etc. and often the only thing keeping them from growing is a spark of innovation.

At the TIME2 wing of SID, this is precisely where we operate. We work with such enterprises to come up with market ready innovations, which have an indigenous IP at their heart. Here time is of the essence and often these objectives are achieved in a period as small as two years. We also enable co-innovation, design and development with IISc faculty and students and strategic partnerships with SID incubatees.
