About the program

Google for Startups Cloud Academy is a six-week program for CEOs, CTOs, and machine learning engineers to learn about data analysis, machine learning, organizational management, and leadership through training by Google employees and experts, as well as 1:1 mentoring for business growth.

Key benefits

    Through mentoring sessions (where we'll share everything from data ETL to lifecycle management), the program supports data analytics for business acceleration. We provide advice on data strategies that are essential for business growth—from tips related to building a data-driven culture to insights on ways to monetize data and increase earnings.
