Deuba visited T-Hub here and interacted with the Telangana government officials. During his visit, the prime minister said a team of Nepalese officials and business leaders will soon meet the State government officials to prepare a roadmap for a T-Hub- like project in the Himalayan nation, said Telangana Principal Secretary for IT and Industries Jayesh Ranjan.
“He (Deuba) was very much impressed with the concept of T-Hub. He said his officials and delegation members will soon get in touch with us to work out a possible tie-up for replicating T-Hub concept in Nepal,” Ranjan told PTI.
T-Hub, a State government initiative for startups, acts as a platform for entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and academia to interact and collaborate. Housed in 70,000 sq ft ‘Catalyst’ building, the facility provides co-working spaces for startups and acts as a support system that connects organisations and stakeholders. Deuba, who is on a five-day tour to India, also visited the Infosys campus in the city.
Deputy Chief Minister Mahmood Ali said Deuba will be leaving for Tirupati tomorrow. “He visited Infosys (campus). He was impressed with the IT growth in Hyderabad. He also visited T-Hub. He was curious about the Nizam’s dynasty and its rule. “I explained him about the Nizam’s legacy. I also explained him about the measures the Telangana government is taking for IT development,” Ali said. Earlier in the day, Deuba and his wife arrived here from New Delhi. They were received at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport by Deputy Chief Minister Ali.
