Cloud programme for Goan startups
Internet services giant, Google recently joined hands with the Goa Technology Association (GTA) to carry their startup programme for Google cloud.

In August 2016, Google had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Goa government towards making the state digitally empowered. The global company has several initiatives for small and medium businesses in Goa to go digital and create an online presence. To help startups, Google provides online training as well as training in classrooms. The Goa Technology Association (GTA), an association of about 100 local IT companies was formed in June 2017 with the purpose of helping startups grow.
