Applications for the 2023 Google for Startups Accelerator: Women Creators and Google for Startups Accelerator: Black Creators are now open. Have a look at what our alumni creators needed to state about previous programs:
As tech business owners continue to drive development with fresh concepts and brand-new applications of AI and machine-learning innovations, it’s an interesting time for the tech start-up community. However the headwinds of the 2022 financial investment environment have actually produced a high uphill climb for creators searching for financing, and underrepresented creators continue to deal with even higher structural barriers to getting their companies off the ground.
While the current financial recession has actually affected start-ups throughout the board, it has actually disproportionately impacted start-ups helmed by females and Black creators, with women-founded start-ups getting just ~ 2.1% of overall U.S. VC financing, and Black-founded start-ups getting just ~ 1.1% of U.S. VC financing in 2022
Google for Startups is dedicated to leveling the playing field for all creators, and today we’re delighted to open applications for our 2023 Google for Startups Accelerator: Women Creators and Google for Startups Accelerator: Black Creators friends. We’ll choose twelve start-ups throughout The United States and Canada to take part in each program. These virtual accelerator programs are equity-free, three-month extensive bootcamps, offering creators the tools they require to get ready for the next stage of their development journey.
Taking part start-ups will get mentorship and technical job assistance, in addition to workshops concentrated on item style, consumer acquisition, and management advancement. In addition to assistance from leaders and specialists throughout Google item locations, each accelerator uses a friend of peers developing high possible start-ups who support one another with shared knowings, insights and chances.
We hope that these accelerator programs add to the continuous effort in developing a more inclusive and fair tech start-up community for underrepresented creators. Start-ups in the U.S. and Canada are urged to use.
