Google for Startups will hold its sixth Startup Academy for Women Founders to support women leading startups in Latin America to capitalize on new business opportunities.
Originally launched in 2021, Startup Academy Latam is a 100% online program, which takes place in 40 hours, over 5 days. It includes technical product, marketing and leadership training, as well as training on topics such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, relevant for startup founders.
So far, five editions have been developed with a clear focus on accelerating ventures founded by women. In past editions, startups from industries such as edtech, fintech, delivery and retail have participated.
The partnership between Google Developers, Women@ Google and external strategic partners allows the startups the potential to scale to reach other regions.
The program is equity free and participating startups will receive:
- Technical product, marketing and leadership training
- 1:1 mentoring and expert technical support
- Access to an exclusive network of women in technology
- Access to future opportunities and programs
- Recognition of participation from Google
The program is open to women who have a technology-based startup in early stage (Pre-Seed – Seed) located in Latin America; can prove traction and revenue from a product that is already in the market; and the startup has a full-time founding team with at least one female co-founder or non-binary identity.
