Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator invites tech and tech-enabled startups

Continuing its bid to invest in India’s startup ecosystem, Oracle Cloud has reinitiated its startup accelerator program called Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator.
 
The program is now accepting applications from startups for the second cohort in Delhi and Mumbai, and the fourth cohort in Bangalore. Applications are also invited for Oracle’s new virtual-style, non-residential global program called Oracle Scale-up Ecosystem.
 
The addition of Oracle Scale-up Ecosystem allows the company to work with startups at all stages of growth, and regardless of their location.
 
Launched in early 2017, the program received thousands of applications across its eight residential locations worldwide. The company accepted over 40 startups globally, including 5 startups each in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore last year.
 
The Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator is open to technology and technology-enabled startups. Five to six startups are selected per cohort, with two cohorts each year. Interested startups can apply for the program by June 15, 2018.
 
Run by members of Oracle’s research and development team, the program provides mentoring by technical and business experts, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors, and free Oracle Cloud credits.
 
“We look forward to working with more emerging companies in the thriving Indian startup market, and are dedicated to continuing to build an ecosystem of co-development and co-innovation where startups, customers, and Oracle all win,” said Startup Ecosystem and Accelerator, senior vice president, Reggie Bradford, in a statement.
