In 2020, Google launched its first Startup Accelerator in Canada. Since then the company supported more than 30 Canadian startups from coast-to-coast.
These startups cover a wide range of industries—from healthcare and biotech, agriculture, education, finance, telecommunications, real estate and more—and have gone on to raise more than $140 million collectively.
Google is now accepting applications 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.
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.
Google will 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.
Past Vancouver accelerator members include AVA Technologies, MintList, Miru, and Semios.
Applications are open until February 1st and the accelerator will kick off in March 2023.
