The IMAGE, a Centre of Excellence for gaming, VFX, computer vision, and AI, has taken off with STPI calling for entries for the maiden incubator.
The IMAGE-STPI, a 10,000 sqft facility at Madhapur, will incubate 25 start-ups a year over the next five years.
Though it is housed at the STPI (Software Technology Parks of India) facility for now, it will move to the IMAGE Towers when it is ready.
On Monday, IMAGE-STPI signed agreements with TVAGA (Telangana VFX, Animation and Gaming Association), Hyderabad Angels, the Hyderabad Software Exporters’ Association and IIIT-H.
The five entities will provide resources and mentorship to the start-ups at the incubation centre.
Entries can be submitted by March 31 at image.stpi.in.
In the first year, 20 start-ups will be selected for the incubation programme.
