Telangana: Hyderabad has two landmarks that one simply has to see. One, of course, is the legendary Charminar. The other is the new-age dream startup destination – T-Hub.
Last week, T-Hub completed one year of operation, and the journey so far has been on the ascent. This unique public and private sector partnership between the government of Telengana and three premier academic institutes – IIIT-H, ISB, and Nalsar – has so far proven to be more than just a physical space, having become one of Indias fastest-growing startup engines, catalysing innovation, scale, and deal flow.
The recently announced second phase of expansion bears testimony to its success. The facility, which will spread over 350,000 square feet,will receive an investment of Rs 180 crore and is likely to be open to entrepreneurs by mid-2018.
Today,T-hub has Indias largest startup ecosystem under a single roof, with over 70,000 square feet of space. The infrastructure and the design are both futuristic and cutting edge. As you walk into this startup haven, you cannot help but feel the vibrancy and energy that the startups bring in. The startups within T-hub are divided into seven sectors and specialisations – Fintech, Healthcare, Agritech, Smart Cities, Transportation and Logistics, Sustainability and Social Tech capturing Big Data, IOT, Analytics, Sensors, Cloud and Mobility.
