Introducing the inaugural class of the Google for Startups Accelerator, India Women Founders



In June, we announced applications for the inaugural cohort of Google for Startups Accelerator - India Women Founders. Today, we are pleased to announce the first class of 20 women founded / co-founded startups, selected from close to 400 applications.

The program, designed specifically for women-founded startups, will place special emphasis on subjects like access to networks, access to capital, hiring challenges, mentorship and many others which, for a variety of social reasons and low representation, prove challenging for female founders. In addition to these, the curriculum will include workshops and support around AI/ML, Cloud, UX, Android, Web, Product Strategy and Growth, as well as provide access to a global community of women founders.

This program is part of a larger effort by Google towards improving the representation of women across different sections of India’s digitally-trained workforce - be it entrepreneurship, professionals looking to upskill or young graduates seeking a head start on their career - with the ultimate objective of making technology universally relevant and helpful.
