From over 400 submissions, Google unveiled the first cohort of the “Google for Firms Accelerator-India Women Founders,” which will include 20 women-founded or co-founded startups.
The software giant will concentrate a specific emphasis on a number of issues that female entrepreneurs often find difficult due to societal norms and lack of representation, including mentorship, hiring difficulties, access to networks, and access to financing.
The program will also feature seminars and support in areas such as AI/ML, cloud computing, user experience, Android, web development, product strategy, and growth, according to the business. It will also provide students access to a global network of female entrepreneurs.
Aspire for Her, Brown Living, CoLLearn Education, Commudle, Dubverse, Elda Health, Fitbots, and other firms were among those chosen.
“This programme 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,” said Google.
