12 startups from Odisha have qualified to receive technological and financial support from Google for three years. As many as 48 startups from Odisha had applied for the programme but only 12 could meet the criteria set by Google.
Under the initiative, free credits will be provided to these startups so that they can focus on building their business and let Google take the responsibility of scaling and securing their infrastructure.
Odisha aims to emerge as one of the country’s top three startup hubs by 2020 and facilitate at least 1,000 startups over the next five years. The state government is also planning to sign a pact with Google to get its help in nurturing the startups.
“Google has selected 12 startups across sectors to use services like AdWords, application programming interfaces (API), cloud services. Google will provide these startups with a credit of $3000 to use these services in the first year,”, said an official.
For three years, start-ups will get $100,000 from Google provided they fulfil certain criterions, he added. Now construct concrete house with 20% lesser cost in Odisha
