Under the programme, the startups from across key areas requiring innovation such as healthcare, fintech, social, education, will receive three months of mentorship and support from Google and Industry mentors.

The 16 Indian startups selected under the programme include EkinCare, AgNext, Goals101, OkCredit, Nemocare Wellness, , (Bolo Indya), Yoda, Hypd, EloElo, Aquaconnect, Bullet, MedCords, LegitQuest, KareXpert, and Walrus.

As part of the programme, these start-ups will have access to Google teams, tech guidance on projects, machine learning related support, UX and design mentorship, leadership workshops, networking opportunities, and PR support among others.

“Like the last cohort, GFS Accelerator India continues to operate with an expanded scope of our three-month mentorship and support programme for startups. We’ve included startups across maturity levels that are not only utilising cutting edge tech but are meaningfully helping India, and potentially the world, adapt and move forward in this season,” Ravindranath G said.

Google in September last year launched the fourth batch of its GFSA programme with 20 startups. The fourth GFS Accelerator programme doubled its batch size from 10 to 20 startups.
