Google’s Startup Launch Program extended to Russia

Google plans to launch its Google Startup Launch program in Russia, reported Russian tech blog

This international program is not time-limited and is focused on startups in the early stages of development. Startups that end up in Google Startup Launch will participate in technological, product and marketing training seminars. In addition, they will receive support from specially selected mentors.

In April, a three-day educational event called Google Startup Launchpad is planned in St. Petersburg and a similar five-day event in Moscow is scheduled. Events will be held in conjunction with the business incubator Ingria and startup accelerator MetaBeta.

Two months ago, Google’s decision to move a part of its Russian engineering team from its Moscow office to other locations triggered speculations about the US firm’s strategy in Russia. Google’s last move with the Startup Launch program suggests, on the contrary, that the firm is committed to continuing to do business in the country.
