About Google Developers Launchpad Accelerator 2019
Google’s Launchpad Accelerator has opened applications for its second class last week where its focus will continue to be Artificial Intelligence (AI) startups. The ‘Launchpad Accelerator’ which held its inaugural class on 10 September 2018 programme focuses on AI startups and machine learning (ML).
In its second class, agriculture and healthcare technology are emerging as the two strong themes which the accelerator is likely to back in the future given their scalability and high impact potential, a Mint report said. Regarding the selection process, India head Paul Ravindranath said, the startups should have a product that is being used by real users and it is not at an idea stage, the report said.
Launched in July 2018, the 3-month programme has been designed to grow the AI/ML ecosystem by helping Indian startups build scalable solutions for the country’s unique problems.
The programme, based out of Bengaluru, aims to provide a cohort of 8-10 Indian startups mentorship and support from the best of Google in AI/ML, Cloud, UX, Android, web, product strategy and marketing, along with up to $100k of Google Cloud credits, the company said in a statement during its launch.
