Hyderabad: The state government’s start-up initiative for women ‘We-hub’ is yet to open its co-working space, one year into its announcement. We-Hub has 23 start-up incubates, and the space is open for all women entrepreneurs.
Located on two floors in the Dr B.R. Ambedkar Open University in Jubilee Hills, it has 50 workstations, three conference rooms and six hot desks. We-Hub is equipped with a mother’s room, children play area and cafeteria.
Unlike T-Hub, which charges about Rs 7,000 per workstation per month including GST, We-Hub is likely to charge less. The charge is likely to be Rs 4,000 for a workstation, including basic amenities plus internet, cafeteria, access to meeting rooms.
The costs for usage of space on a daily basis is yet to be finalised. We-Hub Chief Executive Officer Deepthi Ravula said, “This facility is not just for start-ups incubating with We-Hub but also to all women entrepreneurs across the state. Women entrepreneurs who do not work out at We-Hub can also reserve the facility for meetings.”
She said that in order to make it accessible to start-ups in Tier 2 and 3 cities, We-Hub was subsidising the workstation costs. “We are yet to finalise the costs,” Ms Ravula said.
The bookings can be made online, once the facility is inaugurated. Officials are waiting for the formation of new government to declare We-Hub open....
