Amazon Web Services, in association with Accel launched the AWS ML Elevate program in July 2023 to enable generative AI startups to accelerate their journey.
The program received over 400 applications from startups across India, out of which, 35 Indian startups have been selected to be part of the AWS ML Elevate 2023 cohort. The applicant startups were screened across various scoring parameters such as market opportunity, product robustness, underlying tech stack, and business viability.
The selected startups offer distinctive and forward-looking generative AI solutions such as drug discovery, content generation (including audio, images, videos, textual), code generation, and others.
The program offers the selected startups technical and business mentorship, and guidance from experts, along with access to a community of industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and VCs. The AWS ML Elevate 2023 cohort participants will also receive access to impactful AI models and tools, the AWS Activate Program, and up to $200,000 in AWS credits.
