We just finished half of Launchpad Accelerator boot camp #3!
It’s a lot of work but great fun.

As I wrote in the past. I’m having a real fun to leading Google Launchpad Accelerator. If you don’t know what we do and didn’t click here. The goal is to help tech startups build successful business. We focusing on emerging markets and working with a group of talented mentors (from Google and outside) to bring real value to the startups.

How?

We are running this program by working closely with these startups and helping them with the most critical challenges. You can see below all the startups that are taking part in this class.

The analysis and guidance are being done by mentoring sessions. In these sessions we leverage the vast experience of Google’s engineers and other external mentors from top companies and venture capitals in silicon valley.

We covered topics like: Progressive web apps, Android, Firebase, Growth hacking, Business, Fundraising and any other challenges that the startups wanted to get help with. It’s a packed two weeks, but the beauty is (that in most cases), the mentors giving the entrepreneurs hooks and not fishes. Our goal is to learn from these sessions and share the finding publicly. So I hope to have a lot of new posts for you in the next several months.

This week we had some inspirational talks and lots of productive sessions. A quick browse in the photos (or this growing set of photos) below will give you a glimpse to the magic that is rolling in our startup space in San Francisco. Continue reading
