Google has announced that the Google for Startups Growth Academy: Cybersecurity program is currently accepting applications.
The application will take into account startups wanting to scale worldwide and particularly states it is for Seed to Series A startups situated in Europe.
The three-month school will be off in April with courses led by a combination of Google employees and professionals from the EU’s business community. Successful startups will meet with other cybersecurity-focused entrepreneurs and receive devoted mentoring across strategy, sales, and alliances, including from Google officials at VirusTotal and Mandiant and other top European companies.
The program will be based on three in-person events taking place in Europe, notably in Málaga, the location of a new Google Safety Engineering Center for cooperative study on advanced threats debuting this year. It is somewhat reminiscent of Google’s Hustle academy offered in Africa.
Other requirements include;
Startups should concentrate on a cybersecurity component like prevention, protection, research, or threat analysis and sharing.
Startups need to have proven traction (users, revenue).
Startups need a scalable product or service with a sizable total addressable market as well as a justifiable growth strategy.
Applications are now being accepted and will end on February 12, 2023. Here is where to apply.
