Google selects 20 Indian startups for its accelerator programme

Google announced that it had selected 20 Indian startups for the seventh edition of its Google for Startups Accelerator, including the train ticket booking app Trainman.

The company said these Seed to Series A startups were chosen from more than 1050 applications and will use generative artificial intelligence (AI) to their advantage.

“These startups now join the growing portfolio of 137 Google for Startups Accelerator startups in India. We have kick-started the program with a 1-week in-person bootcamp in Bengaluru on 12th June focused on training/workshops and office hours around product and design, tech, growth, and people, with a significant focus on AI/ML and Generative AI,” the company said.

Trainman, a startup that the Adani Group recently acquired, is among the selected startups.

For Seed to Series A tech startups in India, the Google for Startups Accelerator (GFSA) is a three-month, equity-free accelerator programme. Over 130 Indian startups’ growth journeys have so far been accelerated by it.   

Google started accepting applications in March of this year for the seventh edition of the accelerator programme.   

The company had previously stated that startups in India working in various industries currently using or planning to use artificial intelligence or machine learning are eligible to apply and will be given mentoring and support around Cloud, UX, android, web, product strategy, and growth.
