Run by members of the Oracle research and development team, the program aims to continue to accelerate cloud-enabled innovation by providing six months of mentoring from technical and business experts, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors, and free Oracle Cloud credits. It also offers a global network of startup peers.
The program, which launched its Bangalore pilot program in April 2016 and was joined by a diverse mix of applicants from hundreds of companies, 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.
Interested startups can sign up to receive more information at www.oracle.com/startup.
Oracle Senior Vice President of Product Development Reggie Bradford, a serial entrepreneur himself, will lead the program expansion alongside Oracle Group Vice President of Development Sanket Atal, who first launched the pilot program in India.
