Google has announced the companies that will be a part of the second class of startups in its Launchpad Accelerator program. The 24 startups are based out of Brazil, India, Indonesia, and Mexico, and as part of the program each company will receive mentorship and resources to help successfully scale the mobile apps that they're working on.
From the Google Developer blog:
Class 2 kicks off June 13. The startups will descend on Google HQ for an intensive 2 week bootcamp. Under the tutelage of Google product teams and mentors from the global Launchpad network, they will receive intensive, targeted mentoring, equity-free funding, and more benefits during the 6-month program.
These are the companies included in the second Launchpad Accelerator class:
- Emprego Ligado
- Love Mondays
- Jarvis Store
- Programming Hub
- PlaySimple Games
The Launchpad Accelerator program, unlike other accelerators, is focused on providing mentoring to startups in developing countries, giving them the skills and seed funding necessary to finish building out their apps.
