New virtual program focuses on helping startups to reboot, scale and sustain their businesses
91Springboard, India’s pioneering coworking community, partners with Google for Startups (GfS) to launch ‘Startup Sprint’ – a virtual program that provides an opportunity to various startups and entrepreneurs across India to scale up and expand their businesses online by helping them learn modern digital business tools. The goal of this initiative is to help startups adapt to a transformed world, with more people spending time online and the growth of the digital economy.
Through Startup Sprint, entrepreneurs and new-age startups would be able to access various knowledge-sharing platforms, upskilling techniques, and advice. This will help them streamline their businesses, generate new ideas, and understand evolving customer needs using digital tools and channels.
Launching on 18th June, 91Springboard along with Google for Startups will conduct a series of workshops, roundtable discussions, and interactive sessions conducted by selected industry experts.
Commenting on this initiative, Anand Vemuri, CEO, 91Springboard said, ‘’We are happy to launch the Startup Sprint program in India for our young entrepreneurs and new business communities. 91Springboard believes in nurturing the startup ecosystem and fostering its growth through ample learning opportunities. This partnership with Google for Startups will enable startups and businesses to go digital and optimize their operations. We are helping businesses navigate their way through the pandemic with valuable insights from industry stalwarts to reboot, sustain, and scale up their ventures.”
“COVID-19 has changed life as we know it. In India and around the world, founders are stepping up to solve for new and unforeseen challenges as they always have done — with agility, innovative technology, and resilience. And now more than ever, developing a thriving startup requires help,” said Michael Kim, Head of Google for Startups, APAC. “We are excited to partner with 91Springboard on this initiative to ensure the startups of India grow and adapt to today’s rapidly changing business environment. When startups succeed, our communities and economies do, too. And we want to ensure Google supports these efforts every step of the way.”
Community engagement is the DNA of this cause and this collaboration is aimed at tailoring business strategies for the new-age startups and businesses to enhance their online presence. Below are the details of the program
