As Google’s mission is to increase the accessibility of information, co-founder Ghazal Qureshi believes that UpBrainery Technologies will fit right in. “With Google’s advanced technologies and their sophisticated ecosystem of cutting edge tools, we are excited about how that will help us to identify, analyse and manage data on learning behaviours in order to refine and build sophisticated AI models for learner journeys,” says Ghazal Qureshi, co-founder, UpBrainery. “This support from Google comes at a very critical stage as we are ramping up our line of immersive educational software tools and gearing up to launch our $2Mil raise.”
“85 percent of participants from Google for Startups Founders Academy that we ran in Georgia reported that the program helped grow their startup, whether that be through job creation, fresh pathways to capital, new strategic partnerships, or increased brand and marketing exposure,” says Jewel Burks Solomon, Head of Google for Startups US. “By expanding the program nationally, we’re hopeful that we can continue to level the playing field for underrepresented founders and their startups, like UpBrainery, by connecting them to the best Google has to offer.”
