Google wants to give entrepreneurs worldwide a push in the right direction through supportive partnerships and programmes.

Google for Entrepreneurs plans to focus on three main areas:

1. Partnerships with strong organizations that serve entrepreneurs in local communities

2. Google-led programs to bring our teams and our tools directly to entrepreneurs

3. Placing relevant Google tools in the hands of startups as they are getting off the ground and ready to scale
