New Delhi, Aug 28 - IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today asked Indian-origin IT entrepreneurs based in Silicon Valley, US, to mentor start-ups from India and sought their collaboration in new-age areas like artificial intelligence and data analytics.

During his visit to Silicon Valley in San Francisco (US), Prasad interacted with prominent achievers and entrepreneurs including Vinod Dham of (Pentium chip fame) and Professor Thomas Kailath of (Stanford University), an official release said.

At his interaction with entrepreneurs, Prasad "urged them to provide mentorship to the growing Indian start-ups of India from their vast experiences", the statement said.
