Standalone efforts are currently underway but only by working in unison to create an innovation ecosystem will fast-pace our efforts in enabling and empowering entrepreneurs who work on research and development to help solve problems of national importance,” Mr. Bakshi said.
The objective of the conference was to showcase DRIIV’s initiatives in sustainability and breakthrough tech innovations and bring together members of the ecosystem who are instrumental in delivering the objective.
