HYDERABAD: On the lines of T-Hub, the Telangana state government on Thursday launched Women Entrepreneurship Hub (We-Hub) which is India’s first state-led service exclusively for women entrepreneurs . It will be led by Deepthi Ravula, who stays near Mahabubabad of Telangana, and has worked in the US and also with the IT Department. We-hub will begin functioning from Friday. It is located at the T-SAT campus at Dr B.R. Ambedkar Open University in Jubilee Hills. We-Hub is open for both technology and non-technology business.

“One key characteristic of We-Hub is that it aims to be a platform that brings all the key elements of a vibrant eco-system together. The government will be the first customer for the start-ups in We-Hub,” minister K.T. Rama Rao said at the Launch of We-Hub. The government will procure services from start-ups which is the same as T-Hub. NITI Aayog launched the Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP), on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

 

Through We-Hub, Telangana is the first state-level incubator to partner with NITI Aayog. Six MoUs were signed with UNDP, PwC, CII INW, Salesforce, AIDEA, NAARM and NSRCEL-IIM Bengaluru. While the interested women entrepreneurs can apply through  http://wehub.telangana.gov.in/, the space currently has 100 seats. The applications will be scrutinised by Ravula and Chief Innovation Officer of Telangana Phanidra Sama. Companies which are led by women can only apply.

Location: India, Telangana
