By Ken Briodagh May 10, 2017

According to a recent announcement from Oracle, and following the launch of the Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator Program in Bengaluru and subsequent expansion into Delhi/NCR, Mumbai and other international markets, the company already has successfully mentored and nurtured two batches of startups as part of this program in India. Oracle is now calling for applications from early-stage technology startups to join this program in Bengaluru, Delhi/NCR and Mumbai. Registrations are open and the group will start in September 2017.

The Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator program provides startups with six months of training and mentorship, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors and free Oracle Cloud credits. Through this initiative, Oracle is looking to boost entrepreneurship, economic development and further the country's digital agenda. The initiative targets medium-sized firms, including startups, which encompass a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy, contributing more than 37 percent of India's GDP.

“We believe startups are at the heart of innovation. Supporting and building an efficient ecosystem for them is critical,” said Sanket Atal, Group VP, Development, Oracle India. “We've had the opportunity to nurture some great business ideas with the startups we've worked with in the first two batches. As we continue to promote cloud innovation, we also involve Oracle's global product development teams to identify opportunities where we can foster co-development. This is an exciting time for us and we look forward to continuing our support toward India's startup community.”
