Google Launches Accelerator Program For Women-Founded Tech Startups
The accelerator will provide support and resources to 10 through 12 women-founded tech businesses that are young in their development, according to bizwomen. More specifically applicants should have their companies be anywhere between the seed stage and the Series A funding stage. Applications are only open to companies in the U.S and Canada.
Resources provided in the program include access to Google’s employees, product and growth labs as well as their machine learning technology.
“We’ll use the best of Google’s people, network and advanced technologies to help women founders build and scale successful products and businesses and bridge the gap between men and women in the startup ecosystem,” Jason Scott, head of startup developer ecosystem at Google, said.
Applications will be accepted until July 22nd and the program will run virtually from September 28th through December 4th, 20202. Google has also founded a similar program for startups with black founders.
