The initiative will be a gamechanger for the immense growth prospects and for businesses that need a little cushion due to Economic Slow down. Empowering start-ups and SMBs are the core objective of this initiative, this will give them the power to recognise the importance of cloud. Our purpose is to support, sustain and help the start-ups in India to grow and achieve the global standards. Not only this will be beneficial for the health of the start-up industry but the Indian economy as a whole."
