Biotechnology has permeated several areas of everyday existence including food, medicine, energy and environment. The confluence of Biotechnology with different branches of engineering has spawned the growth of several diverse industries in the areas related to Biofuels, Biosensors, Biomedical devices, Bioinformatics and similar state-of the art inter-disciplinary technologies. Entrepreneurship is a opportunity that seamlessly integrates with the Biotech sector. The following facts endorse the same:

 India is among the top 12 biotech destinations in the world and ranks third in the Asia Pacific.

 The Indian biotech industry in India has grown from $1.1 Billion in 2005 to $7 Billion in 2015 and is expected to grow at 30.46 percent CAGR to reach US$ 100 billion by 2025.
