Speaking of this collaboration and its benefits to the ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship at IIT Hyderabad, Prof BS Murty said, “IIT Hyderabad continuously encourages the ecosystem of entrepreneurship with its unique BTech minor in entrepreneurship and its technical incubators such as i-TIC and CfHE. “

“With a wave of global start-up culture, we’ve taken a big step forward and signed an MoU with an established venture capitalist, New Frontier Capital Management (NFCM), which has a global presence, including in Tokyo and Singapore,” he added. # Prof Murty further said that a joint innovation center in Tokyo and the IITH campus together with an office for NFCM on the IITH campus will provide a global platform for IITH incubators.
