Hyderabad: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella today said that the tech giant would like to work with T-Hub to develop accelerators and startups.

He said this during his visit to T-Hub, billed as India’s largest technology incubator.

“Indian talent in the area is dramatically growing and we can see their dominance in the field,” he said while addressing budding entrepreneurs.

On a visit to Hyderabad, Nadella visited the facility located at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Hyderabad.

Nadella said Microsoft’s goal and dream are to empower local entrepreneurs to solve last mile connectivity.

He said that his energy comes from the interaction with entrepreneurs across the world.

“There are three points to success. concept, capability, culture. Learn more from day one… chase after your concept or idea. Improve your capability to chase the idea… Curate the culture,” he told the entrepreneurs in an inspirational talk.

To a query, he said the importance of failure lies in learning from it.

Telangana’s Information and Technology minister KT Rama Rao took him around the T-Hub and explained about various initiatives of the government.
