The selected start-ups in the second batch will be announced in February 2019, Google said. "Our Launchpad Accelerator programme is bringing best of our expertise, platforms, tools and core strengths including Machine Learning and AI, to help Indian start-ups build, scale and grow their offering," said Paul Ravindranath, Product Manager, Launchpad Accelerator India.
"The first batch of Launchpad Accelerator India, saw more experienced founders hailing from tier-II and tier-III cities, leveraging AI/ML to solve for India's real problems. We are excited about the role these new age start-ups can play in creating AI-based innovative solutions across agri-tech, language, healthcare, transportation and more," Ravindranath added.
Each class in the Google Launchpad Accelerator India programme consists of up to 10 start-ups who receive mentorship and support from Google in AI/ML, Cloud, user experience (UX), Android, web, product strategy and marketing.
