Opportunities: Apply for the Google Africa AI Accelerator Program

Google has announced a new startup accelerator program for Africa, aimed specifically at artificial intelligence (AI) startups looking to use AI to solve local challenges.

The Google for Startups Accelerator: AI First program recognizes the transformative role that AI is playing across the world, innovating industries and reimagining the realms of possibilities, Google said.

It also highlights the significant contributions of African startups in addressing some of the region's most pressing challenges through the use of AI.

The "AI First" program draws learnings from past initiatives such as the Google for Startups Accelerator: Africa, The Google for Startups Black Founders Fund, and The Google for Startups Accelerator: Women Founders, where the primary aspiration remains to support and highlight African-driven solutions.

Applications for the ten-week equity-free "AI First" accelerator are now open, inviting startups up to series A stage based in Africa or building Africa-centric solutions with AI and machine learning.

Participants will benefit from access to Google's AI expertise, technical resources including up to $350,000 Google Cloud Credits, mentorship from seasoned AI professionals and networking opportunities.
