Mentors & Startups

Our Mentors have been carefully selected and reviews by our Head Mentors and a committee of Googlers. More than 28 experts from the fields of Product Strategy, UX/ UI, Technology and Marketing as well as Pitching, Finance or VC are helping our Startups to succeed. 

Our Startups have been selected in a joined effort with the local ecosystems and networks. They will be all accepted for the Google Launchpad Program to also get additional support after the Launchpad week.

Quotes from Participants:

Tatiana, SkillnDeal: "I think Google Launchpad is the best addition to an accelerator or an incubator program. It is very intensive but it is really helpful for startups."

Oskar, Timply: "The benefits are huge, fist of all you get a lot of great people known, you receive a lot of contacts and you just point your mentors what are your problem areas and they will help to solve it."

Philipp, roomister: "The biggest learning this week is that we just reinvented the whole product, the whole value of the product. That was completely turned around and we got a good thing out of it. So it was a huge benefit for us to join this program."
