Is Google for Business Startup helping people?

Member

I know since the COVID-19 outbreak, a lot of companies and investors are pulling back because funding has become tight in a lot of areas. I am not sure where Google is with all of this going on. Does anyone know if they are still supporting new startup entrepreneurs?

Yes, they are. I can't remember the page but there was one addressing what is going on and what they are doing to help. It may have since been removed though as I am not able to find it right now. Maybe someone else can, I could just be overlooking it.

They are working hard on ensuring that everyone stays above water. They are doing what they can really. I can't expect companies like this to shell out free money but they are looking out for businesses run under the Google title for sure.

Google was doing a lot when it first happened. I know they just contracted people to work from home for another year, a lot of their employees. It ends up being cheaper for them as well.

I would think operations have continued as normal for them.


Although, I imagine they can't support everyone the way they need right now. Troubling times indeed.

They were and I am sure they still are to an extent but I have not seen anything on this since April, maybe May. Most businesses will only help for face value and for a short period of time.

Google is always helping people with business startups, especially if they can have their influence or direct hand in the pot, so to speak. I think what Google does is great but a lot of times, there is a self interest involved.

Someone I know works for Google and they were giving a lot of smaller businesses free resources and such to keep their businesses going. There are a lot of outlets in the real world (offline) where Google invests and helps out.

@edmund  A friend of mine used to work for Google and maybe this depends on where and what level but he said that they do very little to invest outside of their needs. What I mean by this as that they will only help if it helps them.
