Cost and Equity Free
Residency is cost and equity free. All we ask of our founders is that they engage fully in the program, and share what they’ve learnt so far with our broader Campus community.
Be a part of the global network of startups that have been through Google programs.
The Residency Program offers 6 months of guaranteed workspace at Campus, in São Paulo, and preferred access to our event spaces, all Campuses around the globe and partner operated spaces worldwide.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Campus is closed. The program will kick-off in a digital format. When it is safe to reopen Campus, the program will transition back into its original format and workspace will be available for participant startups.
Also, to take part in the Program, your startup must:
- Have stacked teams with technical and business functions.
- Ideally have a diverse team (in gender, race and background).
- Have a team of 3-8 team members, preference for co-founded companies (flexible in case of remote teams).
- Have a product already launched in the market, with demonstrated traction and potential for scalability and impact.
- Be solving a meaningful/big problem with an innovative solution.
- Have revenue from users/customer or funding (12+ month runway), typically in Seed stage.
- Have founders who speak English.
- Have a core team that will be based in São Paulo during the entire program.
- Be willing to contribute and engage in the growth of the Google for Startups community.
