Founder Talks


“ T-Hub is one of the best incubation think tanks and the largest ecosystem of various kinds of startups working to create an impact in the world. We felt many updates and positive changes in our business after beginning to receive mentorship from T-Hub. AIC Sustainability Program considered startups working on creating a positive environmental impact while working on reducing the carbon and plastic footprint with various kinds of innovations. We feel that every startup working on the aspect of waste management, reusability, alternate materials, or any other approach for a positive environmental impact must join this program for sure. We, as a team at Himalayan Hemp wholeheartedly thank T-Hub and AIC Sustainable Program team and mentors for doing their work courageously and bringing positive changes in the world.”

“I think the program has a unique community of entrepreneurs and a great ecosystem supporting great infrastructure in the sustainability space. As a result of the connections that AIC-THub facilitates, startups are able to achieve their goals more quickly.”

“Jivoule Biofuels startup based out of Hyderabad is humbled to be selected for the AIC Sustainability program of T- Hub. The program is designed very well to suit the requirements of Startups and Founders. Jivoule Biofuels benefited immensely from the mentoring sessions on impactful topics that were curated basis on the recommendation of startups. The network connections are another huge value proposition of the program coming from T-Hub, Cohort members, and the vast experience of the program management professionals as they were entrepreneurs earlier. As part of the program, we even pitched to the UK delegation to explore synergies and mutual investment opportunities. Lastly and most importantly the Government and Market connections they gave for Jivoule Biofuels is so important for the journey of our startup to meet our vision and mission. As a founder, I am indebted to the T-Hub AIC Sustainability program and to all who supported me in my journey. Thank you very much.”

“T-Hub AIC sustainability –A Cohort program under Atal innovation mission scheme, to facilitate and create an eco-system for start-ups focused on sustainability and environmental social responsibility. Onelement Energy being a part of this ecosystem gained exposure in the market and support from the Govt. of Telangana to address alternative clean energy generation and energy storage. It was definitely a milestone for Onelement that allowed us to have a broader perspective and access to the Industry. We would like to thank T-Hub for making us a part of their visionary community and will continue to be, and contribute in the best of our capacity.”
