This <span class=”il”>program</span> is an exciting new opportunity for startups to apply their ideas and capabilities to emerging but well-defined real-world problems in these areas, and, with <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span>’s help, build full-scale solutions and take those to Indian and global customers.</p>
This <span class=”il”>program</span> is being launched with the support of <span class=”il”>T</span>-<span class=”il”>Hub</span>, the world’s largest incubation <span class=”il”>hub</span>, which will bring its knowledge of the Indian <span class=”il”>startup</span> ecosystem, best practices, and processes, to facilitate, guide and amplify the impact of this <span class=”il”>program</span>.

<span class=”il”>Hexagon</span>’s technology finds use in some of the largest enterprises, in critical operations in governments and defence, in manufacturing and process plants, in building smart cities and critical infrastructure, in automotive, shipbuilding, mining, agriculture, and protecting heritage monuments, amongst others. Being at the forefront of <span class=”il”>Digital</span> <span class=”il”>Reality</span> and Autonomous Technologies, with a global portfolio of customers, <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span> brings an exceptional view into the current and emergent problems in these areas.

A <span class=”il”>startup</span> interested in building up solutions using Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and/ or <span class=”il”>Digital</span> <span class=”il”>Reality</span> may choose to work on any one of three precise problems by submitting their idea and approach to the <span class=”il”>program</span> and sharing their credentials:

● Building <span class=”il”>Digital</span> Twins for EV Manufacturing
● Real-Time Language Detection and Translation
● Enabling Prescriptive Maintenance with AR and VR for Process Plants.

If the submission and credentials stand out, the <span class=”il”>startup</span> will join a cohort of similarly chosen startups to build a full proof of concept (PoC). Each <span class=”il”>startup</span> will have a mentor’s help during this period. The finalist from each cohort would win a prize, as well as gain the opportunity to build a full-scale solution working with <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span>’s domain experts, on <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span>’s futuristic technologies and platforms. <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span> and the startups can then take these collaborative solutions to <span class=”il”>Hexagon</span>’s customer base and scale them across geographies.
