AWS, Accel Announce Accelerator Programme to Support Indian Generative AI Startups

By giving them access to useful AI models and tools, commercial and technical mentoring, and curated resources, ML Elevate aims to promote generative AI businesses.

A six-week accelerator programme called ML Elevate 2023 has been announced by venture capital firm Accel and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to support Indian businesses creating generative AI solutions. 

By giving them access to useful AI models and tools, commercial and technical mentoring, curated resources, the AWS Activate programme, and up to USD 200,000 in AWS Credits, ML Elevate aims to promote generative AI businesses. 

Other advantages include the chance to scale production-ready generative AI apps on Amazon SageMaker JumpStart and peer support from a network of top AI and ML startup founders.

Startups in generative AI that have created a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and plan to apply for funding in the ensuing 12 to 18 months are eligible to apply. Selected companies will participate in live virtual masterclasses, which will include fireside chats and panel discussions with investors, business titans, and AWS specialists.
