Google has associated with Indian government in various projects including setting up of Wi-Fi zones in railway stations, introducing Toilet Locator feature on Google Search, among others. Now, the search engine giant has announced another campaign dubbed as ‘Solve for India’.
Google’s ‘Solve for India’ programme will focus on tier-2 cities like Pune, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kochi, Indore, Nagpur, Nashik, Madurai, Kanpur and Chennai for next one year.
Google will make use of its ample resources and technology expertise in building products to help close to 10,000 entrepreneurs and start-ups in tier-2 cities.
The dip in data charges of late has given huge momentum to mobile-based Internet across India and Google plans to cash in on the situation and help developers to create mobile-first real world solutions in critical areas such as healthcare, transportation, sanitation and more.
“Entrepreneurs will get an opportunity to learn directly from Google engineers who will share product usage insights, how to develop mobile first solutions with strong offline and language capabilities and help them to build solutions across areas like Agri-tech, Healthcare, Transportation, Education, Sanitation and more,” Google India said in a statement.
