TechHub Bangalore, along with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and Indian Software Product Industry Round Table (iSPIRT), on Tuesday launched Great Tech Rocketships initiative that aims to be a platform to identify dynamic and innovative ideas from entrepreneurs across the world.
The programme begins with a global call for submissions. As a first step towards selection, participants have to send in their submissions through a 60-second video tweeted @TechHubBlr using the hashtag #IfNotNowThenWhen.
The selected start-ups will then get an opportunity to demo their products at one of the TechHub Demo Nights on February 3, in London, Bengaluru or Boston. The entrants will be evaluated based on retail technology, finance technology, data analysis and visualisation and novelty of ideas.
TechHub will provide a year's flex membership to the founders of these companies enabling them to leverage the global TechHub network and support system.
Sharad Sharma, co-founder and governing council member, iSPIRT, the information technology think-tank, said "The initiative is another significant step to create a product nation here in India."
TechHub is a community and workspace for technology entrepreneurs and was launched in Bengalure in August last year.
It aims to support 1,000 startups in the next three years. It has been aiming to develop an environment for technology startups through an international network of like-minded and focused tech entrepreneurs.
