Following the success of its two previous iterations, Google’s Launchpad Accelerator, a program to equip founders with mentorship and equity-fee support, has recruited six startups from Indonesia for a third edition, which is set to start at the beginning of January in 2017.

Among the startups recruited were Snapcart, Qlue, iGrow, Jurnal, Mapan (Ruma) and PicMix.  

Participated by developers from Brazil, India, the Philippines and eight more countries, the program will offer startups with support in public relations, free credit for Google products and a working opportunity with the tech company for six months within their respective countries.

“The program includes guidance from Google engineers, product managers and mentors in other fields of expertise from various technology companies and venture capitals in Silicon Valley,” said Google on its official blog on Tuesday. 

The program’s third batch will commence on Jan. 30 at the Launchpad Space in San Francisco, a Google arena in which developers and startups will receive free technical training, individual mentorship and other forms of educational access to ensure the success in the launch of their own applications or startups.

As reported by tempo.co, Google has so far sent 14 Indonesian startups to its headquarters in Mountain View, California. The company is said to commit to support the growth of talented Indonesian developers and help the government establish Indonesia as Southeast Asia's largest digital economy. (mra/kes)
