GOOGLE welcomes an inspiring group of startups from all over the world for the fourth class of Launchpad Accelerator in San Francisco in July.
This time around, Malaysian startup Healthmetrics will be joined by more than thirty of its peers from Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe.
In addition to expanding Google’s reach, the curriculum is also being expanded. Google will help the startups dig deeper into machine learning and AI, to help them leverage on Google’s latest technologies to scale their apps.
Launchpad Accelerator is a six-month acceleration programme that includes mentorship and access to Google Product Managers, a startup package of equity- free support, product credits, and access to Google’s full suite of Launchpad initiatives and connections.
This includes an all-expense-paid trip to Google HQ in Mountain View to collaborate with Google engineers/product managers and regional VCs.
Launchpad Accelerator includes intensive mentoring from 20+ teams across Google and expert mentors from top technology companies and VCs in Silicon Valley.
Participants receive equity-free support, credits for Google products, PR support and continue to work closely with Google back in their home country during the six-month programme.
Class 4 kicks off on July 17, 2017 at the Google Developers Launchpad Space in San Francisco and will include two weeks of all-expense-paid training.
