Google announces a partnership between Google For Entrepreneurs and 91springboard at the opening of the Google for Entrepreneurs lounge at 91springboard’s flagship hub, located in New Delhi. 91springboard connects a community that includes over 8,000 entrepreneurs across India.
The Google Lounge is a collaborate space for community members, developers, and creatives as they take the country’s startup ecosystem to the next level. The lounge is sponsored by Google for Entrepreneurs, which provides financial support and the best of Google's resources to dozens of coworking spaces and community programs across 135 countries.
With an aim to nurture India’s next generation of innovative female entrepreneurs, and empower them to build for the future, the partnership will drive one training program a month led by 91springboard in Tier II cities. These events are directly focused on educating and upskilling female entrepreneurs over a period of two years, with 24 engagements planned across the country. The training will focus on honing leadership skills, running design sprints, fostering tech-focused discussions, and will include 1:1 mentorship for female entrepreneurs.
91springboard will join Google for Entrepreneurs’ partner network, which has a global footprint of 50 partners and includes six Campuses (Google’s owned and operated space for entrepreneurs). 91springboard members will also have access to the Google for Entrepreneurs Passport program, which allows members of 91springboard to work from more than 35 Google partner spaces around the world, from Seoul to Dubai to Dublin to San Francisco. They will also gain access to a number of significant initiatives, including Google’s first-ever Demo Day Asia, as well as the chance to gain new skills through programs focused on empowering women entrepreneurs and other innovations in technology.
