T-Hub 2.0 celebrates spirit of entrepreneurship
The T-Hub 2.0, world's largest startup incubator, would pave the way for global companies to set their shop in India and Indian entrepreneurs to expand their mark across the world.
HYDERABAD: The T-Hub 2.0 is a space for startups to network, collaborate and develop an idea into a solution and it has been proven since day one. Investors, new enterprises, big and small corporates, government officials and many stakeholders now have a magnificent platform to grow together. The space of T-Hub 2.0 does not see age, gender, caste or religion. It supports ideas of entrepreneurs and enables them to channel it into a standing business.
In 2014, IT Minister K T Rama Rao had a vision to see Telangana's entrepreneurial abilities on the global map and this vision gave birth to T-Hub in 2015. The T-Hub 2.0, world's largest startup incubator, would pave the way for global companies to set their shop in India and Indian entrepreneurs to expand their mark across the world.
The 3,50,000 sq ft building would be home to more than 4,000 startups from July 1. It was inaugurated by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on June 28. He wanted Minister KTR, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and Principal Secretary of IT Jayesh Ranjan to work on creating the best in class infrastructure so that the entrepreneurs would find the city not lacking on any front.
Unlike other inaugural events, where chief guests cuts a ribbon or light a lamp, the T-Hub 2.0 was inaugurated with business incubation. The space was open to delegates from across the world to experience the startup ecosystem.
What the day included:
The Telangana Government accomplished bringing top executives of Unicorn companies from across India and gave them space to share their journeys with young startups. Multiple insightful sessions were conducted throughout the day where they spoke about various business-related topics like importance of choosing the right team, fundraising, expansion of business and their vision of India's future as a startup hub and how T-Hub 2.0 would be the first step towards a startup revolution.
Over 40 startups, birthed by T-Hub in the last six years, displayed their products and services which majorly focused on utilizing technology to solve root level problems. Agri-tech, EdTech, MedTech, Lifestyle and Artificial Intelligence (AI) were the key sectors identified by startups in T-Hub. These startups would be making technology for the future.
