Application Deadline: January 10th, 2022

The Google for Startups Founders Academy is a four-month, equity-free virtual program for pre-seed / seed stage startups across the US that is designed to help founders grow their revenues and obtain access to capital. Selected founders will participate in a series of cohort-based workshops and receive customized hands-on support across a wide range of topics including sales, product, strategy, and fundraising. Applications close January 10, 2022 and the next cohort will begin on February 10, 2022.

Eligibility

The business must be a registered entity within the United States. Founders must have at least 4 hours a week to attend each weekly session for 4 months (February – May).

Revenues have varied widely across past participating startups; many have entered the program pre-revenue and others were generating profit before starting. We expect most participants will generate less than $1M/year. With or without revenue, we will consider the business’ traction (users, growth metrics, industry, etc).

Benefits

Funding amounts of past participants have varied widely. Many startups had not raised capital prior to the program while others had raised up to $1M before joining the Founders Academy. Part of our program is designed to help participants craft their pitch and better understand investment avenues if fundraising is right for them.

Application Procedure

Founders Academy: United States runs for a period of four months with digital workshops, programming, and mentorship taking place each week. Selected founders will participate in a series of cohort-based workshops and receive customized hands-on support from Googlers, industry experts and across a wide range of topics including sales, strategy, hiring and fundraising.
