After a successful first run, Google has announced the second round of its Startups Accelerator programme for the Middle East and North Africa region.
Selected startups will be paired with relevant experts from Google and the industry at large to help solve identified problems. Participating startups will have access to 1:1 coaching by experts, as well as workshops that cover machine learning technologies, product design/UX, customer acquisition and leadership development.
“Congratulations to the ten graduates of our first cohort. Thanks to more than a hundred mentors from Google and other key industry representatives of the startup community, we were able to support the startups solve their challenges whether related to product development, setting up OKRs, or exploring opportunities to scale with advanced technologies,” Salim Abid, Google’s Regional Lead of Developer Ecosystem in MENA, said. “We hope through our second cohort to equip more homegrown entrepreneurs with the latest digital skills to grow and tackle the unexpected societal challenges brought by the pandemic.”
Applicants must be tech startups based in MENA that have already raised seed funding. The application window will remain open until May 25th, 2021. Selected startups will be announced in early July 2021.
