Opulent T-Hub 2.0 to usher in creative talent
The phenomenal building, designed by a Korean company named ‘Spaces’, will be the workspace for 4,000 start-ups.
HYDERABAD: The T-Hub 2.0 is a dream come true for startup companies, with an ensemble of extraordinary architecture, and opulent infrastructure woven with richness at every bit to create creative environs for the creative brains to create products and services that would stun the whole creation.
Be it the spacious corporate seating, indoor gyms for employees to work and work-out, an open-air seating with a cafeteria or the modern furniture at every corner, the T-Hub 2.0 would make every stakeholder stepping in want to spend more time there. Located at the centre of 'Cyberabad', it will enable startups to be in close contact with multiple large corporates. The phenomenal building, designed by a Korean company named 'Spaces', will be the workspace for 4,000 startups. The T-Hub 2.0 is not just a building, it is a space for innovation, incubation and incorporation. Airspace is sandwiched horizontally and makes it look like a cake.
The country's largest startup incubator and innovation campus will be inaugurated by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, on June 28, followed by insight-sessions by founders of top companies like Swiggy, DarwinBox, Meesho, BlackBuck, Zomato, BigBasket etc, from across India.
What makes T-Hub 2.0 different from T-Hub 1.0
T-Hub 2.0 would revolutionize startup ecosystem, not just in Hyderabad, but also in the country and the world. Startups with interests in multiple sectors, mainly Agriculture, Health, Education and Lifestyle, would get a platform to walk-in with an idea and get all the means to execute it. It would be home to companies from across the world and cater to them in a judicious way.
The Government of Telangana, with the intent of increasing Venture Capital (VC) firms in the State, would be dedicating one entire floor of the T-Hub 2.0 to them. VC firms who intend to set up permanent offices would get a space free of cost.
The building would include Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) which would be a medium between the Government and innovation. It would be a channel for startups to get legal advice. T-Hub would also foster a Centre of Excellence for cyber security. Startups working towards cyber security would be guided and enriched by the centre.
The focus of T-Hub 2.0 would not just be in developing Urban startups, but also developing and nurturing rural talent. The State Government's IT cell would be setting up small extensions of T-hub in various districts of the State.
In the T-Hub 2.0, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) would be setting up a Centre for Entrepreneurship to create a network between big companies and startups. Big corporates would be able to identify new enterprise and facilitate for them.
Government of India, as a part of its vision to enable startups, would also be providing support to startups in T-Hub 2.0. They would also be setting up the AI-focused Atal Innovation Mission Centre in the campus.
