T-Hub,Uber launch program to connect startups

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

T-Hub, a startup ecosystem builder, in partnership with Uber and TiE Silicon Valley today announced launch of a programme that will connect Indian startups with global market opportunities and help bring global new-age companies to the country.

According to a press release issued by the startup incubator, T-Bridge will enable startup communities in and around the world to cross-pollinate ideas, innovate and create channels for knowledge transfer. It will also create a network of mentors, VCs, incubators and accelerators that is advantageous to the Indian startup ecosystem.



K T Rama Rao, Minister for IT today inaugurated T-Bridge at Uber's headquarters in San Francisco, the release said.

T-Bridge will provide a platform for such fast-track tech companies looking to tap into India's huge consumer market for technology and help startups access UberEXCHANGE- Uber's flagship startup mentorship programme and TiE Silicon Valley's mentor network.

"We have a strong vision to make Hyderabad one of the top 10 startup cities in the world. T-Bridge is one such move towards opening a channel of investment from the world to the state of Telangana. I am proud to open our first outpost in the US in association with Uber and TiE Silicon Valley and believe that this association will forge new partnerships and spur investment and innovation between the two countries," Rama Rao said.

Rachel Whetstone, Uber's senior vice president for policy and communications, said, is one of the most progressive states in India; and it has set up a culture of 'regulatoryincubation' - allowing new ideas and business models to thrive.

"Today more and more people around the world want to build something themselves. Through initiatives like UberEXCHANGE, our mentorship program for Indian startups, we hope to spur entrepreneurship. Creative partnerships like T-Bridge will continue to strengthen ties between and the global startup scene," Whetstone said.
