91Springboard, a co-working community, has collaborated with Google For Startups (GFS) to launch 'Level Up'. This pan-India virtual accelerator programme aims to enable women entrepreneurs to elevate their start-ups and optimise business potential.

The programme combines vital business, technology, leadership and investment readiness elements. A statement said that it offers mentoring, masterclasses, connections and tools for women entrepreneurs to refine their models, enhance their leadership skills, and prepare them to get investment-ready to grow businesses and gain access to capital.

"Level Up aims to address the hurdles women entrepreneurs face by creating opportunities for personal and business growth, providing greater visibility and a national platform, and improving access to capital through investor connections," it added.

'Google for Start-ups' is the tech major's initiative to help start-ups thrive by bringing together its products, connections and best practices to enable start-ups to build something better. Mike Kim, head of Google for Startups Asia-Pacific, stated, "...our constant endeavour is to support diversity in the start-up ecosystem. We have already launched an India Women Founders program, and with this association, we are looking to scale our efforts to support more women founders."

91Springboard CEO Anand Vemuri said the company has always believed in nurturing the start-up ecosystem and fostering growth through ample learning opportunities.

"More women are launching and running start-ups but do not have the adequate support system to flourish. Through this effort with Google for Start-ups, we hope to support women entrepreneurs in optimising their businesses and building successful start-ups," Vemuri added.
