By: GWL Team | Thursday, 4 May 2023

The second iteration of Google's "Startups Accelerator: Women Founders" program has been introduced to support Indian women entrepreneurs who are utilizing technology to tackle difficult challenges and have a good influence on society. The three-month course offers training, mentorship, and networking opportunities for businesses in a variety of industries, including but not limited to e-commerce, healthcare, education, and finance.

Paul Ravindranath G, Programme Manager, Google for Startups Accelerator, India, stated that the program "includes specific modules to support women entrepreneurs in areas like seeking mentorship and advice, hiring talent, and tapping networks for help, to build confidence where cultural conditioning can sometimes create self-doubt."

Applications for the program's second iteration are accepted through June 4. The chosen participants will also get assistance from professionals and mentors from Google and outside networks in fields including technology, product strategy, people, growth, and funding.

Access to Google's global network of advisors, financiers, and business titans is another feature of the training. Startups working on a variety of cutting-edge solutions were among those in the inaugural cohort that had recently graduated. These included platforms enabling rural artisans to sell their goods online, AI-powered diagnostic tools for healthcare, and many more.

The training is a fantastic chance for female entrepreneurs to get assistance and direction as they work through the difficulties of growing their companies, according to Ravindranath.
