Since 2016, Google’s accelerator programs have played a significant role in supporting leading startups in India to grow and address global challenges such as climate change, financial inclusion, economic development, equitable healthcare and more.
Google even released its first Accelerator Impact Report last month claiming that its Accelerator alumni boast a 96% survival rate in an environment where over 80% of startups fail. According to the report, around 20 alumni have gone on to become unicorn startups and one is even a decacorn.
With the announcement of its latest cohort for its Accelerator program in India, Google said in its blog post, “In India, we are committed to fostering an environment that nurtures innovative startups and fuels the rapidly evolving AI landscape of the Indian startup ecosystem. Our goal is to enable the development and scaling of responsible and human-centered AI solutions that positively impact various industries and transform lives.“
