Gwen Williams, Head of the Global Wales Programme, Global Wales said, “It has been amazing to see how much can be achieved in over a year since we launched our partnership with T-Hub in October 2022. We have been delighted to support this collaboration between colleges, universities, and T-Hub, a partnership that has supported developments in electric vehicles, health technology, and digital for Wales and Telangana. We are grateful to colleagues at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, the University of South Wales, NPTC Group of Colleges, and T-Hub for their work on this mentorship program. It has benefited universities, colleges, and start-ups in India and Wales, and will soon provide a catalyst to students in Wales gaining valuable work experience with start-ups in India, through the T-Hub internship program launched earlier this month.”

The mentorship initiative has yielded significant outcomes for startups, leading to the development of three innovative products (MVP by Firewires One IoT, Business Portal by Better Analytics, and Prototype by Acuration) and the formation of five crucial industry partnerships. Highlighted achievements encompass Firewires OneIoT securing two Gateway provider collaborations, onboarding two clients, and Docturnal actively exploring an international pilot opportunity.
