Bulletin: Google Cloud Accelerator selects BC startups Audette and Goose Insurance

Through the 10-week virtual accelerator program, startups gain access to Google's programs, products, people and technology.

Over the past year, the pandemic has demonstrated the importance of cloud technologies for businesses, governments, nonprofits and consumers. As such, Google decided to dedicate an entire accelerator to startups that are leveraging the cloud to drive growth and innovation.

Today, the tech giant announced the class of its first-ever Google Cloud Accelerator Canada, and two BC startups—Audette and Goose Insurance—made the cut.

Victoria-based Audette is accelerating the low-carbon revolution in commercial real estate. Their platform allows large portfolio asset managers to plan their net-zero transitions and access capital from impact investors to make it happen.

Vancouver’s Goose Insurance is an Insurtech Challenger building a platform to solve consumer under-insurance. Through the Goose Insurance Super-App, consumers will be able to access up to 30 lines of insurance completely self-serve. 

This 10-week virtual accelerator program will bring the best of Google's programs, products, people and technology to startups doing interesting work in the cloud.

In addition to cloud mentorship and technical project support, the accelerator also includes deep dives and workshops focused on product design, customer acquisition and leadership development for startup founders and leaders.
