Teaming up with Google Cloud, we've created an immersive experience where startups can flourish, grow, and tap into the very best resources Google has to offer. We've blended in-person and virtual activities seamlessly to open up a world of exciting opportunities. Imagine personalized 1:1 mentoring, invigorating group learning sessions, and experiences that will truly transform your journey.

Our Head of Communications, Joyce Baz, sums it up beautifully: "We know that organizations striving for sustainability-driven transformations need fresh tools and technology to make progress. And we believe that startups like yours hold the key to accelerating this change. That's why, as we step into 2023, we couldn't be more excited to introduce Google's Startup Accelerator: Climate Change programs. We wholeheartedly encourage startups in the Middle East and Africa to grab this opportunity with both hands. Together, we'll identify, support, and scale startups that are building groundbreaking technologies to combat climate change. This is our first-ever program in the MENA region, and we're eagerly awaiting the participation of startups like yours at this critical moment when technology can unlock and speed up the decarbonization of our economy."

But wait, there's more! Beyond the invaluable mentorship, the Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change program offers captivating deep dives and workshops on product design, business growth, and leadership development. And that's not all—selected startups will have access to dedicated Google Cloud technical expertise and the prestige of Google for Startups Cloud Program credits.

We're in this together! You'll receive unwavering support from seasoned engineers and business experts from Google and beyond. Our goal is to provide you with tailored guidance and assistance through personalized 1:1 sessions and collaborative group learning experiences. And guess what? You'll even be paired with specialized Startup Success Managers (SSMs) from Google who will guide you in implementing best practices, utilizing tools, and leveraging our incredible network.
