To make the process of starting up easier and more efficient, Internet giant Google has launched a dedicated site called Startup With Google. As its name suggests, the new site will serve as a one-stop destination for all kinds of resources that startups and founders would require while setting up.
The site will offer access to an array of Google’s own products, services as well as initiatives, including Analytics, Android Studio, mobile and web app development service Firebase, and Google Cloud Platform, among others.
Additionally, Startup With Google will also act as a database of accelerators and third-party startup events sponsored by Google. Through the new site, startup founders can stay informed about Google’s network of campus coworking spaces as well as its Launchpad accelerator programmes for developers.
Furthermore, Startup With Google will boast a wealth of guidelines about the best practices that founders should keep in mind when starting up. This section will include dedicated articles on hiring, fundraising, leadership and team building, designing new products and services, and other relevant topics.
The tech behemoth claims to have fostered a fast-growing ecosystem for startups, which have together raised more than $3.9 Bn funding since 2011. According to the company’s spokesperson, over 40,000 jobs have been created by Google-incubated startups in the last six years.
Google’s Bullish Insistence On India
While the new site is currently targeting startups based in the US, Google has been especially bullish on its growth in the Indian market. In the past year, the tech company has deployed several services for strengthening its presence in the country.
