'India needs to create its own venture fund for nanotech'

Abstract:
In India recently, Cheetham spoke to Mint about what India can do to spur private ventures among its researchers, particularly in nanotechnology. Edited excerpts:
Why has India lagged behind in commercializing academic research?
It's partly education, partly a structural issue. In the US and the UK, we have developed courses in entrepreneurship for undergraduates, graduates, post-docs and even faculty. This helps you develop a scientific community, at least a subset of which is knowledgeable and sophisticated about what it takes to create a company. I think there's a lot that can be done on the education side in India.
