Startups are shaping the future of technology. Across Europe and Israel, entrepreneurs are doing fantastic work at the forefront of innovation: striving to solve some of the most critical issues facing our world. But these pioneering companies often struggle to access the support, expertise and tools they need to help them scale. Because the work of startups is so important, we’re committed to supporting them in their fascinating journeys — providing the best of Google’s tools, mentors and network.

Today, we’re launching applications for two Google for Startups Accelerator programs: Climate Change and AI First. These programs are designed to empower startups by providing the resources they need to overcome challenges and scale their solutions effectively.

Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change

In partnership with Google Sustainability and Google Cloud, this program is designed for Seed to Series A stage startups in Europe and Israel that are developing technologies to combat climate change and contribute to achieving net-zero emissions — from renewable energy solutions to advanced waste management systems.

Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change focuses on leveraging cloud technology, AI and machine learning to drive sustainability efforts. AI’s ability to spot patterns, make predictions and learn makes it uniquely able to address the climate crisis; our joint report with Boston Consulting Group predicts AI has the potential to mitigate 5-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Google for Startups Accelerator: AI First

AI is revolutionizing industries, with the potential to solve complex problems and improve efficiencies across various sectors. A report by McKinsey estimates that AI could add $13 trillion to the global economy by 2030. However, to realize this potential, AI development must be guided by ethical considerations and robust technical expertise.

Designed for Seed to Series A stage startups in Europe and Israel, in partnership with Google Cloud and Google DeepMind, Google for Startups Accelerator: AI First offers mentorship and technical support to help startups grow responsibly with AI. This program supports strong teams with a clear vision for how AI and ML can solve real-world problems across all industries, who are building AI-powered solutions and leveraging AI and ML in transformative ways.

About the programs

Applications for both programs are open until July 21, with both programs kicking off in September in a hybrid format. Each 10-week accelerator combines hands-on workshops, one-on-one mentoring and tailored technical support.

Participants will benefit from Google's AI expertise, access to the latest tools and ongoing access to mentors and fellow founders through the alumni network. The programs include a mix of in-person and virtual activities, one-on-one mentoring and group learning sessions. Key focus areas include product design, customer acquisition and leadership development. Additionally, selected startups will receive dedicated Google Cloud technical expertise and credits through the Google for Startups Cloud Program.
