The top tech startups were selected through ‘Emerge-X’ competition and win Azure credits and a host of business and tech benefits.

More than 650 startups that participated in total five such events so far have benefited from the mentorship and guidance through technology workshops on Azure, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
