Google India recently shortlisted and provided guidance to 11 women-led startups in Bengaluru. But it wasn’t an exclusive women-only event. Read on to know why and learn more about these startups.
As a part of Google’s Launchpad Accelerator programme, Google India recently hosted a Developers’ Launchpad Build event in Bengaluru. Positioned as a leadership development programme, the event explored challenges of being a startup leader. Talking to YourStory, Paul Ravindranath, Program Lead for the Launchpad Accelerator programme said that Google has a universe of Launchpad programmes based on the lifecycle of a startup. He explained,
We look at the startup lifecycles as early, mid-stage and late. For those who have a MVP (early stage) and want to scale, we have a programme called Launchpad Start. Typically lasts for five days and everyday is focused on one form of mentorship. What is happening today is Launchpad Build.
Build involves startups that are a little more advanced, so the programme is of a shorter duration of two days. For startups that have found product-market fit and are looking to rapidly scale, Google has the more popular ‘Accelerator programme’, which involves technical mentorship, credits for Google products, equity-free support, among other benefits.
