Disruptive start-up? Google is looking for you

Disruptive start-up? Google is looking for you

Google is launching a nationwide search to source 10 of the country's most innovative businesses this summer.

The chosen businesses will then receive mentoring and advanced business support from the team at Google’s space for start-ups – Campus London.

The ‘Campus Exchange’ programme focuses on full immersion for founders - with fast tracked introductions to key players in the community.

Previous graduates have gone on to Silicon Valley programs like Blackbox Connect, have been nominated for the Google Play awards, and secured funding from top Angels and VCs.

Francesca Dean, head of programmes at Campus London, said: “Amazing ideas can come from anywhere, and there is incredible entrepreneurial talent across the UK.

“Pooling this talent with the knowledge and expertise of our international community of entrepreneurs, puts Campus London in a unique position to help propel the best start-ups to global scale.”

Applications are open now, with the residential programme set to start on Monday 22 August. Ahead of applications closing, on 29 July, Google mentors are on the road meeting start-ups across the country.

With sessions in Liverpool, Newcastle, London, Cambridge and Edinburgh – start-up founders who think big are encouraged to apply. 

Start-ups can register to attend 30 minute 1:1 sessions, covering topics ranging from analytics to user onboarding, with specialists in tech, marketing, sales and data, on hand.
