Google Cloud and the Celo Foundation have partnered to provide support for startups building on Celo’s blockchain ecosystem. The collaboration will offer credits for Google Cloud and Firebase usage to founders building on Celo, giving them access to tools such as authentication, real-time databases, cloud storage and messaging. The partnership will also see the Google Cloud team provide mentorship and guidance to the Celo Foundation’s Founders in Residence program and participate in the virtual Celo Camp accelerator program.
The two organisations will also co-host workshops and events focused on sustainability and innovation in the Web3 space. Xochitl Cazador, the Celo Foundation’s head of ecosystem growth, said the partnership will help to “create broader awareness for blockchain technology and its ability to scale real-world use cases on Celo”.
