Google and Communitech To Give Away Six Months of Office Space

HYPERDRIVE-Cohort3-3

No matter what level of business you’re at, office space is expensive. Sure, one can coast along for years working out of their kitchen or on the coach, but there comes a time when a bit more professionalism is needed.

Google and Communitech are looking to help one lucky recipient in this regard. The two have come together to offer the chance to score a free startup tenancy for six months in the Google space at the Communitech Hub in Waterloo. The fine print notes that “tenancy is open concept with a capacity of 2 employees per company at a time.”

Six months is enough time to get a solid foot in the door and expand your business, and perhaps even receive funding.

Apart from saving a few bucks and boosting creativity, the other perks include the option of receiving advisory services from Google experts, “potential business opportunities with Google,” a guaranteed spot in the Communitech Startup Services Group’s new Fundamentals Program and a further chance to apply for global Google pitch competitions.

Those interested should apply by August 8th and to qualify your startup must be doing the following:

  • Building on a Google platform, including Android, Chrome, Cloud, Maps or YouTube; or
  • Porting your existing iOS or BlackBerry app version to a Google platform
  • Able to succinctly explain company; co-founders’ backgrounds; product; and market fit to investors, Google product experts and others in the Waterloo Region technology community
