Telangana is unique in the way it has created a world-class Innovation Ecosystem through pioneering efforts in Startups, research, high-calibre talent and policy framework.
Telangana, India’s newest state, displays all the energy, growth, and path-breaking thinking you’d expect from a young, upstart ecosystem. Despite the pandemic, Telangana’s IT sector recorded an 18% growth rate year on year in 2020, compared with a national rate of 8.09%. Telangana may be a young state, but the roots of its success go deep. The state’s capital, Hyderabad, boasts eight universities and is home to one of the largest populations of students seeking technical education in India. Hyderabad also hosts several research centers focused on pharma, biotech and defence-related technology. The state government is deploying a range of policies building on this strong foundation. The Telangana Social Startup Network (TSSN), for instance, aims to help establish 5,000 startups in the next 5 years, with a particular focus on social startups. Telangana startups also benefit from access to numerous local investors, including Hyderabad Angels, Anthill Ventures, Sri Capital, Endiya Partners, and Indian Angel Network. Earlier in their journey, startups can access a range of incubators and support programs. WE-Hub is India’s only incubator for women. It has supported more than 3,000 female entrepreneurs since its establishment. The state also boasts two of the largest incubation centers in the country, IIIT Hyderabad and T-Hub. TiE Hyderabad Bio/Agri-Startup Demo Day brings together AgriBusiness incubators from across the country.
