Hyderabad: Rural Shores, a private company, will soon set up its new Information Technology Enabled Services and BPO unit at Nizamabad with an initial investment of about Rs.3 crore, said Kakatiya Sandbox founding patron Raju Reddy.
The company is planning to set up the unit by recruiting about 350 employees and the initial investment is for physical infrastructure. It will be the company’s 22nd unit all over and the first in Telangana, he said, adding that the unit was likely to be established in about 120 days and that it would be an ecosystem for nurturing young talent and creating more employment opportunities.
All the work being done by Kakatiya Sandbox, an ecosystem for long term social impact through innovation and entrepreneurship in rural Telangana, is helping the local community reap good benefits, he said.
Sandbox provides a platform for individuals and organisations to test ideas, make changes and develop scalable solutions for transforming the society. The ecosystem allows for sharing, networking, collaboration and deliberating ideas with other catalysts, he said, adding that the Kakatiya Sandbox was presently catering to social, economical and cultural empowerment of people in Nizamabad, Kamareddy, Karimnagar, Sircilla, Jagityal, Peddapalle, Medak, Siddipet and Sangareddy.
Vaish Centre for Addictive Manufacturing (VCAM) was another initiative of Kakatiya Sandbox. VCAM works at facilitating the growth of 3D design and printing technology in rural areas of Telangana by training youth and school students. In fact, a few organisations based in Hyderabad get their work done by trained students and youngsters here in Nizamabad, said Phanindra Sama, another founding patron of Kakatiya Sandbox.
“All this was alien technology for many youngsters but now there are few, who are working in remote sensing instruments development as a 3D designer in Hyderabad,” said Sama.
