The partnership – Social Alpha Powered by Google Developers Launchpad – is designed to help start-ups gain access to resources including expert mentors, tools, and methodologies for building businesses that can drive meaningful impact on the technology ecosystem.

This initiative will enable Social Alpha to create learning programmes based on information and resources aggregated from a select group of the world’s top accelerators.

Social Alpha will also access Google’s global network, insights from the company’s Silicon Valley-based start-up programmes and Google’s research and best practices on building businesses, products, and teams.

“As we continue to build and grow the lab-to-market ecosystem for high impact innovations in India, our portfolio companies need access to world class technologies especially in the areas of data science and machine learning,” Manoj Kumar, Founder and CEO of Social Alpha, said in a statement.
