Social media platform Facebook on Tuesday launched “Facebook Hubs”, an initiative to foster innovation and offer support for budding entrepreneurs.

Facebook Hubs will extend support for start-up community by hosting mentor hours and conducting trainings, workshops, discussions across 20 locations in Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Navi Mumbai and in Goa, it said in a statement.

Tie-up for work space

The social media platform said it has partnered with 91springboard, an office space rental firm, for a year-long programme to help start-ups and entrepreneurs scale their businesses.

The initiative includes co-working community hosting, planning and organising structured activities such as learning and skill development programmes for budding entrepreneurs.

“We have already worked with hundreds of start-ups through our various programmes and by teaming up with 91springboard we hope to reach out to more, to fuel India’s start-up ecosystem with a vision to build businesses of tomorrow,” Satyajeet Singh, Head of Product Partnerships, Facebook India and South Asia said.

Facebook Hubs will be part of a global network for training and mentoring facilities for not just start-ups, but also developers, small and medium businesses, creators, and job seekers, the statement added.
