IFERP - Innovative Project Seed Funding Scheme
IFERP provides an opportunity for the Students and Research Scholars to receive financial assistance for their innovative Projects for Proof of concept (POC), Prototype development, Product trials, Validation, Market entry, and Commercialization.
What is IFERP - Innovative Project Seed Funding Scheme?
For the researchers and students, easy availability of capital is essential for their innovative project ideas and startups
Innovative ideas can obtain funding from IFERP only after they have demonstrated a proof of concept.
It is essential to provide seed funding to innovative ideas in order for them to conduct proof of concept trials. The seed fund will be distributed by IFERP to the students and researchers who submitted innovative project ideas
IFERP - Innovative Project Seed Funding Scheme seeks to assist students and researchers by providing financial assistance for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, validation, market entry, and commercialization of their innovative project ideas.
This would allow these innovative project ideas to progress to the point where they could seek investments from IFERP.
Many innovative project ideas fail due to a lack of early-stage capital required for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, validation, market entry, and commercialization.
Seed Funding provided to such promising cases can have a multiplier effect in the validation of many project ideas, resulting in implementation.
