London Immersion

Google for Startups Immersion

What is Google for Startups Immersion?

We believe that London became the Silicon Valley of Europe because of its access to funding, talent, founder experience and education.

At the same time we recognise that there is an incredible wealth of passion, talent and opportunity in all corners of the UK.

We want to help exceptional founders and their teams connect to the ecosystem in London and tap into the opportunities here while they continue growing their businesses in their home ecosystems, create local success stories and employment.

The Google for Startups Immersion is a 12-week program designed to bring the best of Google and the London ecosystem to 10 startups from across the UK.

What to expect?

  • You will pick 3 goals / OKRs for your company to work on for the duration of the program.
  • You will attend a 5-day London based academy providing business workshops, Google mentoring and networking opportunities. Travel and accommodation will be covered.
  • You will be assigned a dedicated senior Google advisor to help you achieve your program OKRs.
  • You will attend a 2-day graduation event designed to showcase your startup and connect you with top investors, key players and other founders.

  • A diverse team
  • Passionate, inspiring, impact-minded leaders
