Charter of GDC
GDC’s mandate is to increase the impact of R&D spends of STEM universities across India by building capacity in commercialising research through a ‘Lab to Market’ mission
Our focus is to strengthen the capability of STEM universities across India in commercialising research, thereby maximising impact on society. We build capacity in faculty, researchers, students and entrepreneurs and boost entrepreneurial thinking on campuses. We exist to improve the odds of success of start-ups emanating from research labs and enable entrepreneurship from science and technology.
STEM TO STARTUP is an integral part of GDC’s ethos and captures the quintessence of GDC’s mission. The acronym, STEM, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – the disciplines that form the underpinnings of scientific research and basis for deep-tech startups. GDC’s objective is to enable the transformation of science into startups that impact society at scale. The Lab to Market journey that GDC undertakes with STEM universities and laboratories is aptly and poetically represented as STEM TO STARTUP.
