GINSEP signs MoU with t-hub

To facilitate the market access for startups between Germany and India, GINSEP signed an MoU with t-hub in Hyderabad on 15.12.2022. The MoU was signed by t-hub Chief Delivery Officer Wg Cdr Anthony Anish (Retd) and GINSEP Project Lead Julian Zix.

T-hub is an innovation hub and ecosystem enabler based out of Hyderabad. Since 2015, it has provided more than 2000 national and international startups access to superior technology, talent, mentors, customers, corporates, investors and government agencies. T-hub shifted into their new state-of-the-art campus in June 2022. 

The signing of the MoU took place in the context of a first kick-off event at t-hub, which was organised in collaboration with TiE Germany. During the session the participating startups learnt about do’s and don’t’s when entering the German market and typical challenges and solutions for startups were discussed. Furthermore, Patent Attorney Dr. Daniel Herrmann (GINSEP Ambassador, Partner at Boehmert & Boehmert, CM TiE Germany) shed light on the importance of Intellectual Property Rights and Patents in Germany. The session was rounded off by an extensive Q&A part. 

What can be expected in future? 

The collaboration between GINSEP and t-hub is of strategic nature: t-hub holds vast experience in soft-landing activities inbound and outbound and intends to ramp up their activities with Germany. GINSEP, on the other hand, aims to offer concrete inbound and outbound opportunities for German and Indian startups. Together the parties will offer soft-landing programmes for Indian startups looking at Germany and German startups targeting India as a market. 

The programmes will be launched in early 2023.
