The second iteration of Google's “Startups Accelerator: Women Founders” programme will support Indian women entrepreneurs who are utilising technology to tackle challenging issues and have a good social effect.
The three-month programme offers mentoring, seminars, networking opportunities, and access to resources for entrepreneurs in a variety of industries, including but not limited to those in e-commerce, healthcare, education, and finance.
Paul Ravindranath G, Programme Manager, Google for Startups Accelerator, India, stated that the programme “includes specific modules to support women entrepreneurs in areas like seeking mentorship and advice, hiring talent, and tapping networks for help, with the intention of building confidence where cultural conditioning can sometimes create self-doubt.”
Applications for the program's second iteration are accepted through June 4.
The chosen participants will also get assistance from professionals and mentors from Google and outside networks in fields including technology, product strategy, people, growth, and funding.
Access to Google's worldwide network of advisors, financiers, and business titans is another feature of the training.
Startups working on a variety of cutting-edge solutions were among those in the inaugural cohort that had recently graduated. These included platforms enabling rural artisans to sell their goods online, AI-powered diagnostic tools for healthcare, and many more.
The training is a fantastic chance for female entrepreneurs to get assistance and direction as they work through the difficulties of growing their companies, according to Ravindranath.
