The DSI and TIA are launching a Technology Acquisition and Deployment Fund (TADF) pilot programme. The aim of the programme is to facilitate the commercialization of locally developed technologies, promoting their uptake by government and its entities to improve their operations, enhance service delivery and address pressing socio-economic challenges.

Through the Fund, South African Entrepreneurs, SMME’s and Start-Up’s will have the opportunity to access much-needed capital for market testing, demonstration and validation in real market and operational settings.

More detail and application forms on the programme can be accessed by following the link below:
