How To Leverage Cloud Accelerators For Your Startup’s Rapid Growth
The startup journey is a fun yet arduous one. It becomes even tougher if startups do not have easy access to core technology as well business mentoring and product knowhow.
In this session we will look at Oracle’s startup initiative, the Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator (OSCA). We will take a quick look at what’s happening with the group that’s being nurtured at the Bangalore accelerator and what’s lined up for OSCA in India and worldwide.
Although OSCA is a great place for startup acceleration, the challenge is that only a tiny fraction of the applicants make it into the accelerator. We will discuss the selection process and how startups need to prepare and package their applications to have a greater chance of getting selected. We will also talk of how startups should approach and leverage accelerators once they get in.
I will share specifics of the free cloud services available to startups and answer FAQs including the most common one “What’s in it for Oracle?” .
