After a successful launch in Bangalore, India, we’re committed to building a supportive ecosystem for startups across the globe. Cloud is enabling incredible innovations across every aspect of business and across every industry. We want to support this next technology revolution powered by cloud.
Oracle Senior Vice President of Product Development Reggie Bradford will lead the program expansion alongside Oracle Group Vice President of Development Sanket Atal, who had launched the pilot program in India. Bradford stated,
The next five to ten years promise innovations and growth that will drive new business ideas enabled by the cloud. Oracle understands that startups are at the heart of innovation, and through this program we aim to give startups access to extensive resources and support when they need it most.
The Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator is open to early-stage technology and technology- enabled startups. The call for applications will open later in 2017 in each of the seven new hubs.
Oracle is pitching itself as a global enterprise-tech company that has democratised its system to support startups, but also has the infrastructure to help them grow. For example, its ‘cloud‘ is actually more than 50 individual services that can be used and applied to companies of all shapes and sizes.
“Cloud is enabling incredible innovations across every aspect of business and across every industry. We want to support this next technology revolution powered by cloud,” said Oracle President of Product Development Thomas Kurian in a statement.
Startup Cloud Accelerator is open to both early-stage technology (implying that the tech is being built without necessarily a focussed on business) and tech-enabled startups (companies that leverage existing technology for business).
The call for applications will occur later in 2017.
