Google Opens Two More Accelerators to Canadian Start-ups

March 22, 2021


Google is expanding the accelerators that it offers to Canadian start-ups, as the new remote reality makes it easier to offer virtual programs in North America.

In a recent announcement, Google revealed that it is introducing a new accelerator for voice technology companies. Additionally, Google is making the Black Founders program available to Canadians. Last year, Google launched its Google Canada Accelerator, a three-month program for seed to Series A start-ups, and made its Women Founders program available to Canadians. The two new programs bring Google’s total number of accelerators for Canadian start-ups to four.

The accelerators follow Google’s announcement that it plans to open three new offices in Toronto, Waterloo, and Montreal, with a commitment to hire 3,500 new employees. Canada’s start-up ecosystem has thrived in recent years, and the new initiatives represent a significant investment in the Canadian tech industry.
