Snapdeal, India's largest online marketplace has announced a partnership with University of California (UC), Berkeley for the Andhra Pradesh government's Smart Village Project. UC Berkeley and Snapdeal aim to create solutions through digitisation and new-age services to discover economical and infrastructural barriers faced by artisans in these villages.

Under the partnership, Snapdeal will provide local handloom weavers, direct market access to buyers across the country, through its platform. Products crafted by these artisans and associations will be curated and listed on a special page on Snapdeal. The company has currently on-boarded the handloom association of Meri Podu village as a seller.

“We are proud to partner with the Government of Andhra Pradesh and UC Berkeley, enabling digital access and generating a world of commercial opportunities for small artisans. Working with a vibrant base of 3 lakh sellers of various sizes, we continue to drive inclusive growth and in-sync development. Through this collaboration, we aim to create employment and growth opportunities for local artisans, enhancing the reach of indigenously manufactured products to newer geographies and extending their legacy," said Vishal Chadha, SVP, business team, Snapdeal.
