What is Google Launchpad?
Google Launchpad Week is a boot camp for early stage startups focusing on critical startup topics: product strategy and business development, user experience and user interface, technology, marketing and presentation skills. Each day is dedicated to a specific topic and structured around overview talks and one-on-one mentorships sessions with top-notch external and Google internal mentors. The goal is to achieve rapid progress in a very short time.
Launchpad Week is designed to support the local ecosystem and adding value to existing accelerator and incubator programs. The Launchpad Weeks run in multiple countries on a regular basis, including Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Singapore and London.
Google Launchpad Week is part of the global Launchpad program (g.co/launchpad). It provides startups in all stages with resources, online content, mentorship and training they need to succeed.
What makes it so special?
You'll have intensive 1:1 mentorship sessions with top-mentors, which are dedicated to help you with your startup, exactly with the challenges you have right now.

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:

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."
