HYDERABAD: India's leading innovation ecosystem, T-Hub, has announced a collaboration with Collins Aerospace, a leader in the aerospace and defence industry. The collaboration is part of the "Powered by Collins" initiative, that aims to foster technology innovation with deep tech small- to medium-sized enterprises.
As part of the collaboration, T-Hub has been named the inaugural Activation Site, a designation given annually by the program for a leading global startup accelerator to support outreach and engagement within a targeted ecosystem.
Through this initiative, world-class startups and scaleups will benefit from funding and collaboration opportunities with Collins Aerospace and T-Hub's expertise as the world's largest innovation campus to drive the project's objective. The goal is to create and field new products and services by combining Collins' expertise with the innovative solutions of startups.
T-Hub will assist in outreach to top global startups and scaleups with expertise in Extravehicular Space Mobility, High-Performance Batteries, Autonomy for Small UAS, and Composites Recycling.
Shortlisted companies will be invited to a collaboration day with program leadership from Collins, which could result in funding to execute a rapid proof-of-concept project with one of the Collins Aerospace program teams.
" This initiative presents an excellent opportunity for Indian startups to work alongside an industry leader and showcase their capabilities. It is a testimony to the talent and potential of Indian startups, and we are committed to sourcing the best startups to participate in this initiative,” Mahankali Srinivas Rao (MSR), CEO, T-Hub said.
“T-Hub was a natural choice to be the inaugural Activation Site for our Powered by Collins initiative. As we expand our engagement with deep tech innovators, we look forward to T-Hub serving a continuing role in that outreach,” said Mary Lombardo, Vice President, Advanced Technology for Collins Aerospace.
