Google India invites the public to cast vote and select one of the 10 ideas it has shortlisted in its bid to make India and the world a better place to live in with the use of technology. Internet users can cast vote before October 30.
The initiative, Google Impact Challenge in India, is part of its social activities and four of the shortlisted 10 ideas will awarded Rs 3 crore each to help them deliver their services. Besides the cash reward, Google will mentor the four winners to help them deliver the projects.
“In the venture world, you sometimes come across an idea and just know in an instant that it has the breakthrough model, exceptional team and scalable business plan needed to make a huge impact on the world. They only need support to do so,” said Ram Shriram, judge and Google board member.
The project goals of the finalists range from rural education to agricultural development to sanitation.
