Hyderabad: Telangana’s startup ecosystem builder T-Hub on Thursday called for applications to the fifth batch of its flagship pre-acceleration programme Lab32. It comes after the successful closure of its third and fourth batch of 41 and 13 startups, respectively. Startups across India have been a part of this programme and have raised Rs 100 crore over the past 12 months.
The fifth batch of Lab32 will commence on March 15 with selected startups that bring in leading-edge solutions for industries, such as health-tech, fintech, smart mobility, sustainability and edtech, among others. 30 to 35 startups will be shortlisted from applications after a focused and extensive screening process. Interested startups can apply on https://bit.ly/3dDtAZH or email email@example.com. Applications close on March 6.
The programme will continue with its hybrid model launched last year owing to the pandemic. It will enable more entrepreneurs across India to participate in the program without the need for a physical presence in Hyderabad. This batch is looking to enable startups from tier 2 and 3 cities to position themselves for growth.
T-Hub CEO and Telangana Chief Innovation Officer Ravi Narayan said, “Startups in major sectors like healthcare, education, and smart mobility, among others, so far, have been benefited from Lab32. The recent success of startups from the previous batch has inspired us further to continue the virtual pre-acceleration program. The fifth batch will focus on identifying startups that are most capable of accelerating India’s innovation quotient at a global level.”
The programme will include a series of workshops for marketing and product design tracks, overlayed by one-on-one interactions with dedicated consultants and complemented by other sessions based on the needs of the batch. The programme team will be closely working with the founders to ensure participation and provide support where necessary through alumni founders and peer connections. Post the cohort, the participants will be supported by the community team of T-Hub for three months.
