As a part of the initiative, the company will be setting up an Innovation Lab in Bangalore, in collaboration with an Indian subsidiary.

The company will be selecting up to three companies with the most promising products. These companies will be handpicked by an eminent judging panel, and the winner companies will get up to $100,000 funding, as a token of recognition and encouragement for their future efforts. The challenge will start on December 1 and will run till February 29, 2016.
