Google for Startups Immersion: Women Founders Application

Google for Startups’ mission is to level the playing field for underrepresented founders and help startups thrive across every corner of the world. Immersion: Women Founders is a 12-week mentorship-focused program connecting ten high potential women-founded startups from across Europe (including the UK) and Israel to the best of Google’s people, products and best practices.

We know that strong leaders build stronger businesses–however, women in entrepreneurship lack representation and visibility at leadership level. As well as connecting women founders to each other, Immersion: Women Founders provides access to developmental opportunities, including VCs and accelerators. By focusing on leadership, connections and growth, this program aims to grow a powerful, global community of women, ensuring better access to the resources they need to grow and succeed.

Google for Startups Immersion: Women Founders offers mentorship from carefully selected Google advisors, tailored content and workshops, VC connections and access to the global Google for Startups community to women founders who want to level up.

Google is looking for growth-stage startups, fulfilling the following criteria:

  • A diverse team, with at least one women founder
  • Based in Europe (including the UK) and/or Israel
  • Building an innovative and scalable product or service
  • Demonstrating traction (users, revenue)
  • Ideally between Seed to Series A stage
  • Willing to give back and contribute to the local startup community
  • Fully committed to the entire duration of the program

Benefits of the Program:

  • Access to Google's network of experts, investors, industry leaders, partners and startup ecosystem
  • A dedicated team of Google mentors help you achieve your program OKRs
  • Ongoing support from the GFS team
  • Weekly Founder Stand ups and networking
  • Tailored content, workshops and office hours
