Google announced today that its Google for Entrepreneurs programs has expanded to Montreal at the Notman House. Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hub Network is the first formal network of this kind in the world and the Tech Hub Network provides mentorship, investment and growth.
Google noted on its blog that “we hope Montreal’s world-class startup community will grow that much faster, building transformative products and companies that will take the world by storm.”
Here are some of the benefits of being involved with the initiative:
- An annual Demo Day where startups from the network come to Silicon Valley and pitch to investors;
- Eligibility for the $100K Google Cloud Platform for Startups program; and
- The Google for Entrepreneurs Global Passport, where entrepreneurs from each hub can work for free at spaces designated at any other hub in the network.
“We are thrilled to welcome Notman House into Google’s Tech Hub Network and to support Montreal’s world-class community of startup talent,” said Patrick Pichette, Google’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our team has been incredibly impressed with the great work Notman House has done in Montreal to support and grow the startup community, and we are excited to work with them to do even more.”
