Ongoing support

Google for Startups support doesn’t stop when a program ends. Once you’ve joined our community, we are invested in your long term success. Founders that complete one of our mentor-based programs automatically become part of our alumni network, so you can stay connected to the Google for Startups team and our global community.

Our alumni can always request support from tech and product teams at Google, and access new learning and networking opportunities.

Successfully completing a Google for Startups program requires commitment, growth, and dedication from founders and their teams. At the end of a program, participants receive an official Google for Startups alumni badge to certify membership in our global alumni community.

We’re so proud of everything the startups in our community have accomplished, and love to highlight alumni wins and milestones on Google channels, from being included in our alumni directory and impact reports, to becoming a part of social campaigns on our global profiles, or to being featured in long-format stories on official Google sites and our story hub.

Occasionally, alumni may also receive invitations to join Google at top tech events worldwide, where they’ll be able to pitch their startups and mingle with international founders and ecosystem players, getting access to the vibrant spaces where things are most likely to happen.

By thinking we deserved to be invested by Google we could accelerate our fundraising. Now we’ve almost doubled revenue, and expanded across the EU and US.
