Harvard students at T-Hub8 months ago Sruthi Malla
With T-Hub growing as the Indian Silicon Valley spot, now students from Hardvard are interested to know more about it. GES 2017 organised by T-Government and T-Hub not only helped Indian startups to know the bigger picture but also showed the world how big is the Indian Startup scene and how fruitful it is to invest here in India.
It’s been 2 years already since 2015 inaugurated by Ratan Tata, T-Hub is a public/private partnership between the Government of Telangana, three of Indiaís leading academic institutes (IIIT-H, ISB & NALSAR) and the private sector.
It bills itself as standing at the intersection of the start-up, academic, corporate, research and government sectors.
Apart from the colourful look with inspirational quotes and energetic teams, there are many more things that are quite interesting about this 70000 square foot building.
Started supporting the early stage startups back in 2017, now T-Hub is helping both startups and corporate tech giants to collaborate and work together.At the early stages of starting up it is highly impossible for any startup to open doors for corporates but now backed by T-hub it became so easy. All you need is a better problem-solving strategy and a great team.
T-hub is proven to be the main reason for the tremendous rise of 200 startups to 2000 startups based out of Hyderabad within the short span of 2 years since its inception and that is why with the help of T-Hub, Hyderabad is emerging as the global destination for startups.
Now that things are going at a faster pace with this model, the central government is planning to establish similar kind of setup in every state and T-Hub is helping them through the process.
A successful model is always a matter for the study to the universities like Harvard, that is why students are here at T-Hub Hyderabad to get more insights from the incubator itself.The COO of T-Hub, Srinivas Kollipara himself took this opportunity to explain the students about T-Hub, its functionality and the verticals it is focussing on.
And there was an interactive session for about an hour where students posed questions about the difficulties of startup establishments in India and how T-hub is able to overcome those to achieve the name they have today.As the COO explains the students the main setback for the Indian startup ecosystem is the language barrier that people were facing and that is why what works in silicon valley will not work in India. India needs a different setup and also he explains if the idea is good and has the potential to reach the 10% of the population of India it is a huge success in a massively populated country while saying India has got it own rules when it comes to startups. He also explains T-Hub is not just an another co-working space where people come and work and then go , their main motto is to build some sort of connection
between the teams and the building has got everything in place to facilitate the same.
