GOOGLE FOR ENTREPRENEURS

As a member of The EC, you’re now part of the Google for Entrepreneurs Partner Network. We’re a collection of startup
organizations who support entrepreneurs all over the world. Some of us are accelerators; some are startup spaces;
some are simply teams of people passionate about sharing knowledge and resources within our community.
Below we have shared the different resources that are available to you through our partnership. 


PASSPORT PROGRAM:
Take a meeting in Shanghai, interview a customer in Mexico City, or pitch an investor in San Francisco. Through Google for Entrepreneurs Passport, you can work flexibly from over 40 partners’ spaces around the world, including all Campus locations. Talk to an EC staff member to learn more.

 
 

The Google for Entrepreneurs Partner Network is a global community of best-in-class startup organizations. It exists as both a refuge and a resource for the trailblazers working to grow entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world. Whether it’s swapping learnings, sharing office space, or facilitating introductions, the members of our Partner Network are teaming up to help startups succeed. We hope you’ll join us.

GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM:
GCP for Startups is designed to help early-stage tech companies build and scale on Google Cloud Platform. We want to surround your net-new investments and existing portfolio companies with the resources and support necessary to build on Google’s infrastructure and accelerate their growth. In early 2016, Google For Entrepreneurs announced the GCP for Startups Spark Package

 
 

As part of our Spark program, all startups referred on or after September 18th, 2017, will receive $20K in Google Cloud Platform credits. Startups who actively consume their credits will be invited to apply for an additional $80k in credits. Those who meet the criteria for additional credits will also have their time in the program extended for an additional year. We recognize the uncertainty that comes early in building a company and we'd like take the guesswork out of Cloud. 

The Spark Package includes the following for accepted startups:

  • $20,000 in Cloud Credits for one year. The credits are good for all Google Cloud Platform products including Firebase and the Machine Learning APIs.
  • Technical Q&A Office Hours
  • Free Google Apps for Work for 12 months (only valid for new domains)

As a GFE Tech Hub Partner, we are able to nominate eligible startups for the spark package. If you are interested in being nominated please contact Kelli Nowers


GOOGLE DEMO DAY:
Apply to pitch top investors in Silicon Valley and beyond. Twice a year, Google for Entrepreneurs hosts a pitch competition focused on a specific entrepreneurial group or region. Past events have included Women’s Demo Day and North American Demo Day. Learn More Here


EXCHANGE:
Immerse yourself in a new market. Every few months, Google for Entrepreneurs teams up with a partner to host Exchange. Startups within a specific industry travel to a major city and spend a week learning from experts in their field. Past Exchanges have covered topics like travel and health tech in cities like Paris, Dubai, and Durham.
