Pichai about initiating start-ups in India :

Pichai said, “Sadly today, it is mostly the large companies which are making use of them. But truly, anyone can harness the power of technology. The internet is as much for the established local merchant as it is for a high-flying startup. And with internet, even a small business can become large one in the blink of an eye.”

“We work on open platforms like android because we can reach as many people as possible. It’s always been like this with Google since the beginning and this is what drew me to Google a decade ago. We have worked on products for everyone. When I was growing up in Chennai, information was a luxury. I would work hard to get access to any book I could, to gain new information. Today, a kid growing up in Chennai with an internet connection can access the same information as a Stanford Professor or anyone else in the world,” he added.

Responding on ‘Digital Unlock’ and SMEs :

Sundar Pichai said, “We are calling the program ‘Digital Unlock.’ You’ll have online and mobile courses but also real world trainings in classrooms. Also, for the next three years, we will hold 5,000 training workshops across 40 Indian cities. We hope to reach thousands of businesses.”

In fact, the first of these, with more than 100 small business leaders is actually happening right now, right across the hall. Any small business with an internet connection can sign up and get started on these trainings today,” he added.
