T-Hub, the start-up incubator, has launched the Arcade Series, a series of events to help start-ups meet industry players. Beginning this month, Arcade will pick one vertical each month, bringing relevant stakeholders together to discuss opportunities.
The incubator has tied up with UST Global, a leading digital transformation solutions company, to organise the networking meets.
“The maiden event held last week focused on scouting for innovative solutions for the financial and banking industry. Hundreds of start-ups working on smart payments, wealth tech, robotic process automation, cyber-security, lending and financial inclusion took part,” Ravi Narayan, CEO of T-Hub, said.
As many as 12 start-ups were selected to pitch their products and services in front of more than 30 corporates such as UST Global, HDFC, HSBC, Citibank, PayPal and Kotak Bank.
The selected start-ups will get to co-create solutions and explore strategic partnerships with industry players. UST Global has shortlisted five start-ups (Pencilton, PayBee, Taxilla, Finoremic and Monech) for further evaluation.
T-Hub would be launching platforms such as the FinTech Arcade, under the Arcade Series focused on other verticals such as healthtech, agritech, sustainability, smart cities, blockchain, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) in the next few months.
