What were your goals for Google for Startups Accelerator?
Ingrid: Our company is currently bootstrapped — we don’t have any VC investors — which means I don’t have access to the network of mentors that others may have. I heard from peers that Accelerator: Women Founders provided excellent mentorship.
Tiffany: It was a great opportunity for us to grow our business. Three months of one-on-one Google support and mentorship not only helped us build our product, but also helped us earn external credibility.
What technical challenges did you tackle during Google for Startups Accelerator?
Ingrid: SAFETYDOCS Global’s software has been in the market for six years, and we needed to update it to scale our business. The technical support and mentorship we received in the program helped us understand the gap between the second and third versions of our software and determine how to move forward.
Tiffany: We met with subject matter experts and addressed our technical issues and options. We were able to ensure our entire team had access to these resources. We rely on Google Cloud services like Vertex AI and AutoML. During the program, our tech team, especially the junior team members, could accelerate their timelines and implement solutions after meeting with Google experts.
