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.

“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.”
