Found8 brings Google's Startup Advisors Program to S.E.Asia— Meet the first 6 startups

We are happy to announce that in collaboration with  Google for Startups, Found8 launched the Startup Advisors Program this July 15. The Startup Advisors Program is the highest-touch program that Google for Startups offers to startups.

Selected startups will get the opportunity to work with an advisor from Google for 12 weeks to receive honest and actionable feedback about their business that they can apply right away. They will get to learn how to formulate Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and integrate them into their company practice. The startups will also receive subject-matter expertise from Google’s local team through one-on-one sessions with Google advisors and/or one-to-many sessions led by a speaker from Google. 

 

The Startup Advisors Program first launched in Q3, 2017 with Stockholm (Epicenter), Amsterdam (TQ), and Dubai (AstroLabs) simultaneously. The program has already been introduced to 5 other cities and Singapore is privileged to be selected to run this current cohort alongside 3 additional cities.
