The accelerator helps startups solve specific, technical challenges with the best of Google resources - people, network, and technologies. These offerings and their measurable impact on startups' businesses set this accelerator apart.

As part of the Google for Startups Accelerator, selected founders outline the top challenges facing their startups, and are then paired with relevant experts from Google and the industry to solve those challenges. Participating startups will receive mentorship and specialized support from our global mentor network, as well as access to Google's AI/ML, Cloud, Android, and Web experts.

We are looking for:

  • Seed to Series A startups with a technology-based product.

  • Startups should have some level of market traction with their product/service and are past the “idea stage”, with some initial customer validation.

  • Startups should be able to identify a large market opportunity for significant impact.

  • Startups who are solving for the challenges we face today: whether that’s startups looking at new healthcare, education, finance or logistics solutions in light of social distancing restrictions; using AI/ML or data analysis in meaningful ways; or using technology to make the world more inclusive for the elderly or people with disabilities. 

  • The startup’s founding team and/or key team members should be able to demonstrate that they have the technical skills, business skills, and mindset to grow and scale a company in this region.
