In a bid to nurture Indian startups working in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Google announced to open the India chapter of its global 'Launchpad Accelerator' mentorship programme.

The three-month 'Launchpad Accelerator' India programme has been designed to grow the AI/ML ecosystem by helping 'desi' startups build scalable solutions for the country's unique problems. The programme, based out of Bengaluru, will 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.

Over the years, Google has worked with some incredible startups across India, who are using advanced technologies to tackle everything from agri-tech to language web, healthcare and transportation. "With the 'Launchpad Accelerator' programme, we will be able to build a bridge between startups and the industry ecosystem," said Roy Glasberg, Global Launchpad Founder.
