Since launching the first Google for Startups Accelerator Canada cohort back in 2020, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the country’s brightest startups, offering the best of Google’s expertise, technology and mentorship, to help them scale and grow.
In the last three years working with this cohort, we’ve supported more than 30 Canadian startups from coast-to-coast, including Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. These startups cover a wide range of industries—from healthcare and biotech, agriculture, education, finance, telecommunications, real estate and more. And we’re thrilled to share that since graduating from the program these startups have gone on to raise more than $140M CAD collectively.
We are equally excited to announce that applications are now open for the fourth Google for Startups Accelerator Canada, launching March 2023. The accelerator is designed to bring the best of Google’s programs, products, people and technology to Canadian startups that are leveraging machine learning and AI today or plan to in the future.
In addition to mentorship and technical project support, the accelerator also includes deep dives and workshops focused on product design, customer acquisition and leadership development for founders. Like all of our accelerators, the program is equity free, and concludes with a Demo Day to connect founders, increase startup visibility and drive connections to other ecosystem builders across Canada.
We’ll select up to 12 Seed to Series A tech startups headquartered in Canada. Participating startups can expect detailed technical training and high-level strategic development opportunities with our machine learning, people, product and growth labs.
Applications are open until February 1 and the accelerator will kick off in March 2023. If you’re a startup using AI and machine learning to innovate and grow, apply here—we’re excited to see how we can help you!
