T-Hub has introduced EV Entrepreneurial Program in partnership with EV Master Class.
This program will enable startups to enhance their products through mentoring and aims to nurture the students and professionals to acquire the necessary skill sets to build and accelerate their careers in the field of the EV industry.
Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Industries & IT, Telangana, addressing the event said, “One of the biggest challenges faced by the EV industries currently is the shortage of the relevant talent pool across the country. Apart from the talent pool, the EV ecosystem also needs more entrepreneurs plunging into this space for the industry to thrive rapidly. Telangana Government has taken a concrete step toward helping the industry by promoting the first such initiative of building an EV Entrepreneurial Program. This initiative aims to nurture and encourage young talent, working professionals and entrepreneurs from across the country to consider EV as a profession to pursue or an enterprise to build.”
MSR, CEO of T-Hub said, “India’s startup ecosystem is now a globally celebrated story, and our entrepreneurs are doing some phenomenal work in building solutions that solve critical industry challenges. We have introduced the EV Entrepreneurial Program to support the advancement of technologies, and business models for a sustainable future. It is tailored to the needs of the Indian automobile industry that is moving towards widespread electrification and will enable the participants to stay ahead in the rapidly evolving EV segment.”
Rajeev YSR, Founder and CEO of EV Master Class said, “These are exciting times for the EV sector. It is important to have more resources trained in various aspects of the industry. This initiative will not only enable the participants to learn necessary skills but will also provide an opportunity to build relevant connections that will support them as they grow in the industry. Apart from this, the EV companies can also benefit immensely from EV Masterclass by recruiting trained students and professionals who would be productive from Day 1. We are very happy to announce that some of the students have already secured placements in renowned EV companies and a few participants have already started their entrepreneurial journey in this cohort.
Riding on the success of the pilot cohort, T-Hub announced the launch of the new cohort in the presence of Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Industries & IT, Telangana during the Telangana EV Day event.
The event was organized to bring together government and industry leaders in the EV segment to talk about the need to reskill and upskill the EV industry.
