Overview about the program

Sas Center for Entrepreneurship Center teamed up with Google Developers Launchpad to start an accelerator program for the startup companies available in the market. The program aims to bridge the gap between the idea stage and the first stage of implementation in which the program will prepare these start-up companies from the technical and investment side to enter the market through an intensive short-term program.

The program is a public-private partnership model that will contribute to the development of the ICT industry so that it can compete globally, create employment opportunities, products with innovative solutions and services, and establish economically viable SMEs. Google developers’ platform is a branch of Google, which manages the global acceleration program that helps startups grow.

This strategic partnership will connect Sas Center for Entrepreneurship, its startups and mentors, to an elite group of the world’s top accelerators. It will also enable them to access Google’s global network, know the company’s Silicon Valley-based startup programs, and twenty years’ valuable research of Google, as well as the best practice insights on businesses foundation , products, and teams at wider scale.
