Giving ex-entrepreneurs another chance at employment, Hyderabad-based global startup catalyst T-Hub will be hosting a recruitment drive for ex-entrepreneurs to re-join the workforce and secure regular employment.
Growth-stage startups of T-Hub’s Lab32 program and renowned corporates will interview the ex-entrepreneurs to offer them permanent jobs upon selection.
From Tech leads and engineers to Android, Java developers, data scientists and even business development managers, there are a host of openings across companies.
It is estimated that 90 percent of start-ups fail due to a lack of mentorship, funding, and innovation. T-Hub, which aims to grow and thrive the startup ecosystem, through the recruitment drive will provide career avenues to entrepreneurs who could not make it big and also enable its startups to scale faster.
“One of the charms of being a startup founder is falling and picking up the pieces again. In this context, India doesn't celebrate 'failed entrepreneurs' enough. As the leader of an organization, any day, I'd lean towards a risk- taking failed entrepreneur over a seasoned professional, given all other skills being the same. With this culture as context, job opportunities for ex-entrepreneurs will augur well not only for the candidates but will also help our corporate partners and startups to find people with a heady mix of technical and entrepreneurial skills,” Jay Krishnan, CEO of T-Hub said in a statement.
Open to people across the country, one can apply starting from August 10 until August 25 and the final interviews will be held on September 1 at T-Hub.
“Those who have dabbled as an entrepreneur are aware of the concerns of a startup, and the founders of Lab32 startups will give them the opportunity to use their experiences and start afresh. While the corporates benefit from acquiring talent that brings knowledge, passion, and a self-driven attitude. We wish to drive similar programs on a regular basis, so the spirit of entrepreneurship is pursued more assertively,” Jay added.
