For three months, the team of these companies will receive intensive mentoring to overcome their technological challenges related, for example, with artificial intelligence.
Google announced on Tuesday the 10 startups that will be part of the first class of Google Launchpad Accelerator.
These companies, originally from Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Chile, will participate in a three-month process where they will be helped, through intensive mentoring, to develop and overcome their technological challenges, mainly in artificial intelligence, Machine Learning, Android, Google Cloud Platform and web solutions (Progressive Web Apps, Accelerated Mobile Pages, among others).
The program is focused on helping startups create technologies and products that are attractive, scalable and impactful.

The initiative has the collaboration of Centraal, a coworking office company and seeks to develop a solid ecosystem of startups both in Mexico and in Latin America.
In a statement, Google pointed out that the approaches and markets of startups range from logistics to digital advertising and that four of them have women among their founders or their executive team.
“For Google, these startups offer global class solutions to specific problems of the Spanish-American and world markets. They were selected because they have the potential to execute, grow and scale their value proposition, and to become or consolidate themselves as referents of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region, “said the letter.
The startups will receive accompaniment and mentoring from April to June, experts in technology, product, investment and marketing inside and outside of Google, as well as training in public relations and leadership.
The program will also open opportunities for these companies to get in touch with international media.
During the program, the teams of the selected startups will receive – with all expenses paid – training, workshops and mentoring in three boot camps, each lasting one week, in the coworking space of Centraal and at Google headquarters in Ciudad from Mexico.
