Google is expanding its Launchpad Accelerator program to two more continents. African and European countries have been added to the lineup.
The Google Launchpad accelerator is a program to empower founders by supporting their startups through mentorship and equity-free support. The Accelerator leverages all that the tech giant has to offer, to help participating tech startups reach their true potential.
The tech giant’s target is to help startups build products on its platform and become successful doing it and ensuing that every startup has access to the best resources that the ecosystem can provide. Startups participating in the accelerator receive $250,000 worth of assistance, including $50,000 in seed funding with zero equity taken, credits to use Google products, physical space in their country to work, access to a two-week boot camp in Mountain View, California, and six months of mentorship in the program before they graduate.
In addition to the mentoring, participants receive credits for the tech giant products, PR assistance, and continued support from Google back in their home country. These are the markets that can apply starting today: Entries are open until April 24.
