Medical Alley Association is excited to announce another set of resources available to our startup members through our partnership with Google Cloud for Startups, a program that connects startup and early-stage companies with the resources they need to build and grow their business.
What is Google Cloud for Startups?
The Google Cloud for Startups program is Google’s initiative to help startups thrive by giving them access to the best of Google’s products, connections, and best practices to help them innovate, validate, and scale.
Startups eligible for our Spark Package will receive §20,000 in Google Cloud Platform and Firebase Credits*, good for 12 months.
In addition to Google Cloud Platform Credits, startups are eligible for:
- Invitations to exclusive, local Google Cloud events.
- Access to Hire FREE for 6 months – a $600 value. (Available in limited territories)
- $500 in Qwiklabs credits to kickstart your company’s hands-on lab training initiatives.
- $200/month for Google Maps API, good for 12 months.
- One year of free G Suite (up to 10 users – only valid for new domains) or a year of discounted upgrades to G Suite Business or G Suite Enterprise.
- An opportunity to apply for our Surge program to extend your credits to up to $100,000 for a second year as your business continues to grow.
This program joins the AWS Activate program in advancing the goals outlined in Realizing the Vision and illustrating our commitment to supporting the Medical Alley startups that are driving healthcare’s transformation. By connecting members with the credits, discounts, training, and other services offered through these programs, we will realize that vision.
If you think your company is a good fit for the Google Cloud for Startups or the AWS program, please reach out to our VP of Intelligence, Frank Jaskulke, to begin the application process.
