Today Oracle is launching a start-up accelerator program in Bristol, United Kingdom, with the initiative aimed at injecting fuel into cloud-enabled innovation around the globe.

The launch of the program comes as one of many, with similar initiatives in areas including: Delhi, Mumbai, Paris, Sao Paulo, Singapore and Tel Aviv.

The content of the program involves six months of mentoring from technical and business experts, and state of the art technology. In addition to this, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors will be provided. The program also offers extensive contact with a global network of start-up peers.

Oracle say’s that the philosophy behind the action reflects upon its own entrepreneurial origin, and their belief in the necessity of support and promotion of innovation among emerging companies for the future of enterprise tech innovation.

Dermot O’Kelly, Senior Vice President of Oracle UK and Ireland, has indicated the company’s intentions in outlining the plan of action. He has spoken about goals of “working as part of this buoyant community to support local start-ups and nurture new waves of development and talent here in the UK”.

Oracle believes that their full cloud stack provides start-up developers with the foundations to start immediately, regardless of whether they are three-tier or cloud native, scale up or scale out. Oracle boasts a global footprint, with more than 50 integrated cloud services aimed to support companies of varying sizes.

Julian David, CEO of techUK said of the plan that “Oracle’s support of the UK cloud ecosystem will be welcome news to start-ups across the UK. Increasing the adoption and use of cloud technologies is key not only to the growth of the IT sector, but also the digital transformation and expansion of organizations of all size in all industries across the economy.”
