Internet giant Google and global community for tech entrepreneurs TechHub on Wednesday announced their global partnership that will benefit startups from India for the first time.
The partnership with Google for Entrepreneurs will bring more opportunities to TechHub’s 700-plus tech startups around the world including India, said a statement released in New Delhi.
Google supports TechHub’s work to help hundreds of tech companies scale up their businesses.
“In Bengaluru, we see a huge variety of startups creating innovative products, and we want to help them succeed both in India and all around the world. TechHub and Google for Entrepreneurs is a strong partnership that will empower Indian entrepreneurs to go global from the very beginning,” Elizabeth Varley, TechHub’s global co-founder and CEO, said in a statement.
Now TechHub members in Bengaluru and other TechHub locations in Riga, Bucharest, Madrid, Warsaw and London will have access to programmes and assistance from Google.
“TechHub’s ‘community first’ values and their focus on supporting founders and startups with education and programs align perfectly with the goals of Google for Entrepreneurs,” added David Grunwald, Google for Entrepreneurs’ head of EMEA Partnerships.
TechHub members hail from over 60 countries and every member can access Google in six international cities.
TechHub membership gives each entrepreneur access to every TechHub in the world and all the programmes and opportunities available there.
TechHub’s programme helped startups face the challenges of building and growing a global tech company, the statement said.
