The board consists of 11 board members. The tdb is the first organization of its kind within the government framework with the sole objective of commercializing the fruit of indigenous research. The board plays a pro-active role by encouraging enterprises to take up technology oriented products.

Any income from investment of the amount of the fund and the recoveries made of the amounts disbursed from the fund are credited for building up the fund.
