Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is scheduled to make a trip back to his home town of Hyderabad, India later in December. However, the trip won't be a vacation but rather a way for Nadella to see efforts by the government of India designed to boost economic growth via a recently launched technology inculator called T-Hub.
The Economic Times reports that T-Hub launched late in November inside the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in Hyderabad and is already the home of 130 startups. It states:
"The 70,000 square feet uniquely designed and fully automated facility has brought together startups, incubators, mentors, venture capitalists, angel investors, legal and accounting firms and other players. The Microsoft CEO's visit is expected to give a big boost to the government's efforts to make Hyderabad the startup capital of India. The government is seeking collaboration with technology giants for strengthening the facility and for developing the second phase on a much larger scale."
The Indian government has already asked Nadella if he will become a mentor at T-Hub. He is scheduled to be in Hyderabad for about three to four days in mid-December. In addition to touring T-Hub, Nadella will also meet with state government officials on Dec. 20.
