Apply now for the new Middle East & Africa startup accelerator on climate change

The United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP 28, heads to Dubai this year and is sure to highlight the many challenges facing a region exposed to water scarcity, rising temperatures and sea levels, and increasing desertification from climate change. World leaders will focus on transforming the global economy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the accelerating effects of climate change that disproportionately affect regions like the Middle East and Africa. To drive the transformative changes necessary, businesses and governments will need to deploy new technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. 

We believe the global startup ecosystem plays a pivotal role in accelerating progress, which is why we’re excited to announce a brand new Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change program in the Middle East and Africa!

Applications are now open for the accelerator, which aims to connect the best of Google’s products and people to climate and clean tech innovators across the region who are building their solutions with cloud services. 

The program is a 10-week, equity-free hybrid accelerator for Seed to Series A startups. In partnership with Google Cloud, this program provides high-potential startups based in the Middle East and Africa a mix of in-person and virtual activities, 1:1 mentoring, and group learning sessions.

In addition to mentorship and technical project support, the accelerator program features product design, business growth, and leadership development workshops. Selected startups will also benefit from dedicated Google Cloud technical expertise and receive credits via the Google for Startups Cloud Program. The program is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to receive support and guidance as they navigate the technical and business challenges of scaling their startups. 

The application window remains open until July 7th, 2023 for business and technical founders to join the program. To ensure Google can provide meaningful value, we’re looking for startups leveraging cloud and AI/ML technologies in their product, service, or operations, and/or that have an interest in leveraging these technologies in the future. 

If you’re on the fence about applying, check out the recent demo days from our climate change cohorts in Europe and North America to get an idea of what this accelerator can do for your startup.
