Google announced today it is building a network for tech entrepreneurs in seven North American cities.
The venture, dubbed Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hub Network, is focused on connecting emerging local tech companies and leaders with each other, as well as with resources at Google.
The company is partnering with tech hubs in Chicago, Denver; Detroit, Durham, N.C., Minneapolis, Nashville and Waterloo, Ontario.
"Through our work in more than 100 countries, we've been incredibly impressed with the catalyzing impact that tech hubs have had: helping startups grow, and creating jobs in local communities in the process," wrote John Lyman, head of partnerships for Google for Entrepreneurs, in a blog post. "We're partnering to create a strong network, providing each hub with financial support alongside access to Google technology, platforms and mentors, and ensuring that entrepreneurs at these hubs have access to an even larger network of startups."
The hubs, he said, offer a new approach to starting a successful new business.
"We're excited to exchange ideas and connect hubs with each other and with Google to have an even bigger economic impact on local communities," Lyman added.
