To further strengthen the efforts to commercialize research and innovation, IST in collaboration with the Higher Education Commission has established Business Incubation Center (BIC) to develop and polish entrepreneurial skills among its graduating students to start their own business by commercialization of their innovative ideas. The management of IST has envisioned the BIC IST as one of the Business Development Services (BDS) provided to serve the local eco-system. Companies graduated from the incubator would have the potential to create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, commercialize new technologies, and strengthen local and national economies.
