Gurugram; May 17, 2022: MG Motor India announced 11 winners of its annual flagship innovation program – MG Developer & Grant season 3.0.

The eminent jury included consortium partners, including SAP, Adobe, L&T Technologies, Bosch, Jio, Map My India, and KoineArth.

The theme of Season 3.0 was Car as a Platform (CaaP), an ecosystem of various in-car services and subscriptions in the areas of utility, entertainment, security, consumer payment, and more. The concept of Car as a Platform introduces software as an enabler with a host of service partners in the car. MG endeavours to evolve CAAP to provide innovative services in line with the fast-changing requirements of new-age consumers by collaborating with more ecosystem partners.

We are excited to engage with 11 winners of season 3.0 to further build this ecosystem together.”

Deepak Bagla, MD & CEO, Invest India, said, “Technology has changed the value proposition across the entire business chain. India has 739 districts, and over 85% of them have a start-up that is registered with the government. Innovative ideas that minds from India’s farthest corners are coming up with will shape the Indian growth story across sectors. These programs are crucial to building new, technologically advanced applications and experiences that can strengthen India’s mobility space.”
