With the election close, Telangana is pressing on gas with its road infrastructure development. The city's infrastructure and travel have improved with many projects, such as SRDP, slip roads, and link roads. The administration is planning to build five more bridges over the Musi River. This will connect the city's southern parts with the rest of it and solve the old problems of traveling in the city. These bridges will cost Rs.168 crore.

The central government also significantly supports Telangana’s infrastructure development. In April this year,
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of projects worth over Rs 11,300 crore, including 13 new Multi-Modal Transport Service (MMTS) services in the suburban section of Hyderabad. The city's facelift can be directly interpreted as more business opportunities in the city. T-Hub, the world’s largest innovation hub located in Hyderabad, has emerged as a pivotal force, playing a significant role in shaping the narrative of innovation and fostering growth within Telangana’s startup ecosystem. According to reports, T-Hub has attracted a total investment of $3.5 billion in the startups it has nurtured. To date, the hub has fuelled innovation through more than 600 corporate partnerships, facilitated 500 mentor connections, and engaged with over 3,000 startups. The unique incubation model recently unveiled two flagship initiatives – T-Bridge and T-Scale. T-Bridge, the International Wing, is designed to facilitate global market access for startups, while T-Scale will help startups grow in the internal markets. This special issue is all about business leaders in Telangana’s startup ecosystem setting great examples of leveraging those opportunities. Do let us know your thoughts.
