Empowering startups to scale sustainably in a constantly changing world.
Google for Startups Growth Academy is a virtual, six-week program teaching companies effective growth strategies (see topics below). It’s designed in partnership with Growth Academy Europe and features courses taught by industry leaders from Silicon Valley and Europe.
Though 74% of digital professionals have never applied growth marketing or hacking, startups with dedicated growth skills outperform companies that lack them. That’s why we launched Growth Academy to address this challenge and provide solutions for growing startups.
