The Google for Startups Women Founders community was founded in 2017 with a mission to offer the best of Google - its people, network, and advanced technologies - to the global community of women-led startups, helping women founders support and inspire one another while building and scaling successful products and businesses using best practices from our core accelerator programs.

We ran in-person events for women founders in San Francisco, São Paulo, Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Tel Aviv, Singapore and Lagos.

We now want to continue building our global community virtually and provide a place for our women founders to learn and grow together during these uncertain times.
