Hyderabad: Doing the host city proud at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit here, five out of 10 startups, who have won an all-expense-paid trip to San Francisco as part of the Uber-EXCHANGE programme, have turned out to be Hyderabad-based ones.
The 10 startups, who were felicitated IT Minister KT Rama Rao during the GES here on Wednesday, will soon head to San Francisco, where they will visit Uber’s headquarters to meet the executive leadership team and be introduced to potential investors.

“Uber is an exceptional partner who can really take them places. I hope the startups do extremely well going forward,” he said, adding that Telangana would soon come out with its own Electric Vehicle policy. Efforts were on to hold talks with Mahindra as well to check out the possibility of manufacturing electric vehicles here itself, he said.
