Oppo offers global platform for innovative tech startups

Hyderabad: With an aim to accelerate the development of high-potential tech startups and promote innovation in the market, Oppo India successfully completed the second edition of Oppo Elevate Program, which witnessed double the number of participants when compared to the first edition. During the Demo Day held in Hyderabad, the top 10 tech startups from India got the chance to present their proposals.

The top four India winners will present their innovations at the Oppo Research Institute Innovation Accelerator's global final, held later this year, and stand a chance to win $46,000. Tasleem Arif, VP and R&D Head, Oppo India, said: "We need companies with a core value to support virtuous innovation and are trying to look at the world differently."

He further said, "Startups have an inherent DNA of innovation and utilising the best technology can offer. Oppo will be working with these startups not just to guide them to succeed but to also deliver their humanistic innovations to the customers and transform lives. We aim to be a springboard for India's startups success and add value to the ecosystem."

The Oppo India Elevate program serves as an incubator for a hub for driving ideas, innovation and action. Over the last year, Oppo Elevate has empowered several start-ups to build innovative solutions leveraging state-of-the-art equipment, global mentorship, and access to Oppo's rich network of partners, helping them drive and fast-track their way to reaching out to consumers.

In addition to mentorship and technical project support, the elevate programme includes deep dives and workshops focused on product design, customer acquisition, and founders' leadership development. This year, the programme has been aligned with the global innovation accelerator program initiated by Oppo Research Institute to bring together resources and expertise from the world.

Focusing on two main areas of innovation, OPPO will provide both financial and technical support to aid the development of innovative technological solutions and bring them to more users worldwide. All proposals submitted to the Oppo Research Institute Innovation Accelerator are evaluated under the supervision of a professional Judging Committee.

In addition to the winners, the remaining presenters are entitled to collaboration with Oppo for applicable technical discussion and access to R&D facilities (Labs, spaces, Mobile devices) on mutually agreed terms and schedules. Further, they will also be invited to Microsoft for Start-ups Founders Hub, and eligible start-ups will receive up to $150K worth of Azure credits, mentoring and access to the tools.

The rapid development of technology has resulted in certain disadvantaged groups being left behind by society. Oppo initiated the Oppo Research Institute Innovation Accelerator in May this year to explore solutions to some of the most urgent issues facing the world today that could help those most marginalised by current technology.

This program draws on Oppo's brand proposition of "Inspiration Ahead" to bring together technology and innovation professionals under the shared belief that Inspiration Matters to help solve some of the world's most pressing issues.
