Google India's support for Tier 2 city start-ups

Posted by Naveen on May 1st 2017

 “Solve for India” is the new program launched by Google India, which aims to support start-ups in the tech field and also mentor new initiatives in the allied fields of technology and innovation.

The program will mentor and inspire upcoming entrepreneurs and startups in emerging cities like Pune, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kochi, Indore, Nagpur, Nashik, Madurai, Kanpur and Chennai.
It will provide a platform for developers and entrepreneurs in tier II cities to hear from experts and learn about the latest Google technologies and get access to direct mentoring and support from Google. Entrepreneurs will get an opportunity to learn directly from Google engineers who will share product usage insights, how to develop mobile first solutions with strong offline and language capabilities and help them build solutions across areas like agri-tech, healthcare, transportation, education, sanitation and more.
“Majority of India’s Internet users are Indian language users and over 80 percent of them access the Internet from their mobile phones. However, the current Indian startup ecosystem is building products for English speaking audience and caters only to 15 percent of the population,” said Karthik Padmanabhan, Program Manager Lead for Google India.
The internet today provides an opportunity to everyone to pursue their passion and create solutions to solve for the real problems of India. “Through this initiative we want to bring the best of Google under one program and join forces with them to help create solutions that serve the needs of a billion Indians,” Karthik Padmanabhan added.
