Rajasthan is disrupting the start-up scene in the country, with tech hubs flourishing across Kota, Udaipur and Jaipur. In line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' initiative, states like Karnataka, Telangana, and Maharashtra are already providing various platforms for aspiring start-ups. But now, Rajasthan has also joined the race. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday opened the country's biggest incubation centre, Bhamashah Techno Hub, in Jhalana Industrial Area of Jaipur, which will provide start-ups with a unique platform to evolve into accomplished organisations.
Spread over 1 lakh sq ft, the techno hub is said to be India's largest incubator centre, which will house around 700 start-ups under one roof. This state-of-the-art tech hub will offer world-class facilities to start-ups working on innovative ideas and futuristic technologies ventures.
During the opening of the facility, Raje said the techno hub is the only free of cost incubation centre for start-ups in the country. All start-ups working from the centre will get everything facilities like mentoring, funding, logistics, office space among many others for free. This approach will not only attract start-ups from other states but will also allow them to refine their products without worrying about logistics and mentorship cost.
For investment, the government has also tied up with at least 40 top venture capitalist firms of India. Global companies like Cisco Networking Academy, IBM IX Academy, HP Academy, Infosys Campus Connect, Oracle Workforce, etc, have also been roped in by the Rajasthan government.
