There are a large number of great ideas around the world poised to make a positive impact. Launchpad Accelerator aims to empower founders with these ideas by supporting their startups through mentorship and equity-free support.
The Accelerator will leverage all that Google has to offer, to help participating tech startups reach their true potential. Launchpad Accelerator currently works with founders from Brazil, India, Indonesia and Mexico, but there are plans to expand to other countries as well — so stay tuned!
Launchpad Accelerator is a six-month acceleration program that includes mentorship and access to Google Product Managers, a startup package of equity-free support, product credits (e.g., Google Cloud), and access to our 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 offers you an unparalleled opportunity to scale your technical startup. The program lasts six months and is done on a scale that leverages all that Google has to offer; including expertise of Google engineers, product managers, and trusted experts in Google’s extended network. Through Launchpad Accelerator, you can utilize this mentorship and privileged product access to scale your business and better capitalize on local markets, while also tapping into new global opportunities.
Launchpad Accelerator is specifically targeting companies that already have a product and are primed to scale. Currently, only technical startups from Brazil, India, Indonesia and Mexico are eligible for selection, but stay tuned as we expand our operations to more countries.
We know an entrepreneur must always believe in what he or she is doing. Hence, we think that if you believe in your idea and your ability to deliver – you should apply! Keep in mind, we are looking for technical startups with the most growth potential, primed to scale in their respective countries and around the world. Several startups will be selected from each of the target countries: Brazil, India, Indonesia and Mexico. The program is selective so that we can maximize our offerings and provide the accepted companies the most value possible.
