TechHub and Google for Entrepreneurs will mentor start-ups

Google for Entrepreneurs (GFE) and TechHub have announced a new global partnership aimed at supporting tech start-ups from around the world with mentoring and programmes from Google.

The companies have already partnered in London, Madrid and Warsaw, where they work with hundreds of technology start-ups to help grow their businesses.

This new scheme will bring the same perks to TechHub start-ups based in places such as Bangalore, Riga and Bucharest for the first time.

David Grunwald, head of EMEA partnerships for GFE, said: "We are excited to expand our work with TechHub beyond GFE's Campus network, where we have collaborated successfully over a number of years. TechHub's 'community first' values and their focus on supporting founders and start-ups with education and programs align perfectly with the goals of Google for Entrepreneurs."

Under the new partnerships, companies will gain access to Google mentors, Google for Entrepreneurs international demo days, GFE Exchange and the Google Cloud Platform.

TechHub operates in more than 60 countries, with members automatically gaining access to any of the programmes and opportunities offered to start-ups around the world.

"TechHub continuously works to improve the way we support entrepreneurs through every part of the start-up lifecycle idea to exit," said Elizabeth Varley, global co-founder and CEO for TechHub. "Our programme helps founders deal with challenges at the different stages of developing their company and product, whether it's their first time or fifth time starting a company.

"TechHub and Google for Entrepreneurs have the same approach using both relationships and data to truly understand start-ups."
