CMD, NRDC highlighted that the Centre would help entrepreneurs/start-ups in the North Eastern region by way of providing innovative technologies that are developed by public funded R&D organizationsacross the country. By choosing these technologies the time to market is drastically reduced and the entrepreneurs/start-ups get support from both the public funded R&D Labs/universities which developed these technologies and from NRDC in the form of handholding, mentoring, filing patents and connecting the local entrepreneurs/start-ups to Start-up India Mission.
