This will make the world more inclusive, even for the elderly and the people with disabilities.”

Once the selected founders outline their top challenges, they are provided access to relevant teams or experts from Google, its partners’ network and the industry, to guide them for solving their challenges. Deep mentorship and project-support is also provided on technical and business challenges. In addition to mentorship and technical project support, the accelerator also features deep dives and workshops, focused on product-design, customer acquisition, and leadership development for founders.
