Hyderabad-based start-up incubator T-Hub along with US-based firm United Technologies Corporation (UTC), have collaborated to launch an advanced emerging technologies laboratory. The announcement was made on September 12 in Hyderabad.
The emerging technology lab will help and develop innovative solutions leveraging the start-up ecosystem, and it will also serve as a platform to enhance awareness about UTC’s Smart Building products.
Speaking on the occasion, Jay Krishnan, chief executive officer (CEO), T-Hub said that digital software and hardware is a game changing segment for India. The country is witnessing high entrepreneurial interest and expect this new facility will greatly boost the technological capabilities of start-ups working in this arena. “The upcoming lab will be housed at T-Hub’s catalyst building,” he added.
