In January, we put a call-out to startups across the country to participate in our second Google Cloud Accelerator Canada cohort. Looking at the incredible response to our inaugural program last year, it’s clear that Canadian organizations across every sector, from healthcare and education, to retail, manufacturing and public services, are leaning in on cloud technology to drive growth and innovation.
Today, we’re pleased to announce a new class of groundbreaking startups for the Google Cloud Accelerator Canada. This 10-week virtual accelerator brings the best of Google's programs, products, people and technology to startups doing interesting work in the cloud. We’re excited to offer these startups cloud mentorship and technical project support, along with deep dives and workshops on product design, customer acquisition and leadership development for cloud startup founders and leaders.
We received so many great applications for this program and want to welcome the eleven startups that make up the 2022 Google Cloud Accelerator Canada class:
We heard from a few of the startups from our cohort about their aspirations for the program.
"The Accelerator will help build all aspects of our company with growth and efficiency in mind," said Krystian, CTO and Co-Founder of Cadence. "It's an amazing opportunity to learn from Google's leaders, with access to all of the Cloud Platform services that will allow us to build our product in a cost efficient, scalable and secure way."
"We're excited to access the best of Google's programs, products, people and technology as we continue to scale globally," said Emil Sylvester Ramos, co-Founder of IRIS. "In addition to Cloud mentorship and technical project support, we look forward to working with Google’s IoT and AI/ ML for the further development of our technology and to work with Google’s Smart Cities teams to help create safer, smarter and more resilient communities and infrastructure.”
"We are looking forward to building connections with many of Canada's top startups to share ideas and continue to grow our own technical knowledge," said Eugene Bisovka, Co-Founder, Tiggy Delivery Corp. "We're also excited to try Google technologies that we haven't used yet for improving our own order batching algorithm."
It’s an exciting opportunity to work with these founders and startup teams to help grow and scale their business. Programming for the Google Cloud Accelerator Canada begins April 11 and we can’t wait to get started.
