"We chose seven teams across the two tracks from a total of 100 applications, of which the winners will represent Hyderabad at the national finals in Delhi in February," said Safir Adeni, president of TiE Hyderabad.
Handing over the prizes to the winners, minister for Information technology for Telangana, K T Rama Rao, added that the state government will encourage private organisations to set up incubation facilities as a part of its start-up policy.
"We are also looking at setting up sector-specific incubation facilities," he added.
