Prof. Prasad Reddy affirmed that a startup hatching is being prepared on the grounds and it is being done according to the new National Education Policy-2020. It is being set-up with RUSA (Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan) reserves.

"We have just constructed a two-story structure and named it as Gandhi Bhavan, and we have glided e-delicate for another two stories. The delicate will be finished instantly. The hatching place is coming up in that building," said Prof. Prasad Reddy.

As per him, all top organizations including focal colleges have hatching cells to prep new businesses and it is important for that activity. "This angle is in fact, wrongly deciphered and imparted by some ideological groups", he said. The structure has around 4,000 square ft for utilization in every one of the two stories and with the new two stories, it will go up to 16,000 ft. "We will at present be missing the mark, as the Detailed Project Report (DPR) was for 30,000 square ft. In any case, we have arrangements for future development," he said.

Prof. Reddy said that the conference will be shipped off four or five new businesses to build up their units on the main floor and the subsequent floor will be left open for the understudies to begin their units.

The new businesses on the principal floor will go about as coaches for the understudies and give entry-level positions and once prepared the understudies will be permitted to begin their own on the subsequent floor and later in the other two stories after they are prepared. On the part of STPI (Software Technology Parks of India), the V-C said that the administration foundation will go about as a financing office and facilitator for the new businesses.

"We will give the office, yet once the startup ventures are endorsed they would require other help, for example, subsidizing and systems administration, and this is where STPI comes in," he said.

STPI is supporting two such focuses in Visakhapatnam, one in Visakhapatnam that is called Industry 4.0 and the other is in AU, which has been named as 'Nex Gen focus', said Prof. Prasad Reddy. Aside from the Nex Gen focus, AU is likewise beginning three examination places, one each for pharma testing, food tasting, and hereditary exploration.

For the food testing lab, AU has effectively tied up with Food Crafts India, and endeavors are on to rope in the rumored foundation for pharma and hereditary examination habitats. The focuses are being begun with ₹15 crore RUSA assets and some old quarters confronting Siripuram have been annihilated to oblige the three-story focus. All the three examination labs will be outfitted with the best in class research hardware and instruments and will give occasion to our exploration researchers, said Prof. Prasad Reddy.
