According to an article by Sameeksha Bhardwain on ITVoir.com, Amazon is starting a mentorship program for Indian startups. This is an extension of Amazon’s existing program:
“We rolled out this programme in several markers including US, UK, Germany, Mexico and France in July last year,” said the director global innovations at Amazon, Jason Feldman. “Globally, we have around 1,000 startups on our platform selling over 4,000 products. In India, around 25 startups are already selling 400 products through this programme.”
Innovative items by startups or new businesses, which have selected for the programme, are showcased here for a month to month expense of Rs 5,000. Launchpad individuals will also have better visibility through widgets and in-house promotions.
