Google has announced three new acceleration programs dedicated to startups at all growth stages. From companies that still need to launch their products, through startups in the transition phase that need to increase their sales, to scale-ups that enter the global market – everyone will find a program that best suits their needs.
Two of these programs will be launched at with Campus Warsaw, Google’s co-working space for entrepreneurs and creatives in Warsaw, Poland. Since the opening, it has also served as a great venue for all startup-related events, workshops, and programs.
All programs are cost- and equity-free.
Launchpad Start: for beginners
The first program is dedicated to startups in an early phase that still need to develop and test their product. The main topics of workshops will include product strategy and business development, user experience and user interface, technology, marketing and presentation skills. The acceleration program is short – only one week long – and jam-packed with one-on-one mentorship sessions. The goal is to achieve an amazing amount of progress in just a week, so all participants should be prepared to make decisions at the spot and be flexible enough to accept major changes in their ideas.
Applications are open until Sunday, 9th April. You can apply on the Launchpad Start application website. The accelerator itself will take place on 24th-28th April.
Campus Residency: for growth
The second acceleration program is a 6-month-long mentorship, dedicated to startups that are already at their transition stage. It allows the participants to build a unique and scalable product, monitor their growth and solve all problems they encounter. Google also hopes that all participants will be keen on sharing the knowledge they acquire with the community.
Applications are open until Tuesday, 11th April. You can apply on the Campus Residency website. The acceleration program will take place from June to December at Campus Warsaw.
