Google to nurture 20 startups by Indian women founders
The curriculum will include workshops and support around AI/ML, Cloud, UX, Android, Web, product strategy and growth, as well as provide access to a global community of women founders, said the company.
Google on Monday announced the first class of 20 women founded/co-founded startups, selected from close to 400 applications, for the inaugural cohort of 'Google for Startups Accelerator-India Women Founders'.
The tech giant will place special emphasis on access to networks, access to capital, hiring challenges, mentorship and many others which, for a variety of social reasons and low representation, prove challenging for female founders.
In addition to these, the curriculum will include workshops and support around AI/ML, Cloud, UX, Android, Web, product strategy and growth, as well as provide access to a global community of women founders, said the company.
