About the program

Google for Startups Growth Academy is an eight-week virtual program for promising growth-stage startups in the DACH region aiming to accelerate their growth with the best of Google. It was designed in partnership with Growth Academy and Google Ads to provide startups with growth strategy training and access to Google experts.

This program is for startups with established product-market fit and at least one woman founder. It's targeted at startups ready to scale and grow their user/customer base.

During the Growth Academy, participants develop actionable OKRs using the Google framework. They'll be matched with a dedicated Google growth expert for the program's duration and learn results-oriented growth strategies through virtual workshops. Founders and their teams will discuss individual growth challenges in one-on-one advisory sessions and come together as a cohort in bi-weekly Founder Standups—an open and honest environment for founders to discuss their highs, lows, and challenges.
