WE Hub

The “WE Hub” stands for “Women Entrepreneurship Hub”. It was launched by the Telangana government in November 2017. This is India’s first state-led incubator for women entrepreneurs. The WE hub is different than the T-Hub in the sense that, the T-Hub is meant only for the technology start-ups while, WE Hub will be open for all kinds of start-ups which are led by women. The We-Hub promotes the women-led and women-owned enterprises in the state Telangana. This hub is also open to all kinds of innovations such as tech start-up, a start-up in social innovation or an idea which is completely radically different.


i-Hub is the vibrant incubation setup. It was established under the student startup innovation policy of the Gujarat Government Education Department. The i-Hub focuses on to develop the start-ups as the catalysers for economic growth in the state. This also provides a conducive ecosystem for the promotion of growth of the start-ups. It further seeks to solve the problem of start-ups – Finance.
