T-Hub With Algorand Foundation – Racing Into the Web 3.0 World

The year 2023 saw Formula E arrive in India for the first time. Hopes were high, recuperating with energy. The race brought great zeal to the Hyderabad Circuit Street and the Web 3.0 Community of Hyderabad – catalysing Telangana state’s Web 3.0 Initiatives.

Algorand Women’s Breakfast Club

Staci Warden, CEO of the Algorand Foundation, led a panel discussion with Shanta Thoutam, Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) Chief Innovation Officer, and Vandana Jain, Director of Evident Capital Investment. The dignitaries assembled at the Algorand Women’s Breakfast Club, attended by 40 women leaders from the T-Hub community.

The session’s objective was to get the women in the tech space to talk about their journeys- stories of failures and successes. The breakfast session was a great opportunity for tech entrepreneurs and thought leaders to share their professional journeys, creating an environment for networking and support.

Exclusive Preview of the Formula E Racetrack

After the breakfast session, Srinivas Rao Mahankali (MSR), CEO of T-Hub, and Staci Warden had an exclusive preview of the Formula E racetrack, which the Envision Racing Team hosted.

This was a chance for the two CEOs to engage in a one-on-one interview and discuss the scope of the new partnership between T-Hub and Algorand.

Racetrack to Success


The in-depth conversation between Stacy Warden and Mr Srinivas Rao had far-reaching consequences, as both the CEOs aligned their synergies on what the new world order with Web 3.0 power can do for Telangana and India.
