For various social reasons, including low representation, which proves difficult for women in business, the program is specifically created for startups that focus on women. It specializes in access to networks, access to capital, mentorship, hiring challenges, and many others.
Additionally, the project offers training and help in AI/ML, cloud, UX, Android, web, product strategy, growth, and access to a global network of female founders. This program is a component of a larger Google initiative to improve the participation of women in various fields among India's workforce that has received digital training.
According to the organization, the ultimate goal is to make technology universally relevant and useful, whether through entrepreneurship, professional upskilling, or fresh graduates looking for a head start in their careers. Because this program aims to address issues faced by female entrepreneurs, every firm chosen by Google was either established by a woman or had at least one female founder.
The list of 20 Indian firms chosen by Google for growth and funding is as follows:
- OPOD Audio
- Rang De
- Elda Health
