Hosted by Communitech as part of Google for Entrepreneurs, five startups will take residence in the Google Innovation Space this fall.

The mini-cohort will tap into a supporting ecosystem for entrepreneurs looking to gain mentorship, funding and growth opportunities.

Within the program, companies receive six months of co-working space, enrollment in courses like the Fundamentals Program, and face time with Google experts. They also access pitch competitions and demo opportunities to Google teams.

The program rolled out at the beginning of the year. Graduates includes fashion identifying app StyleID which launched in June to media interest.

Congratulations to the new Google Innovation Space startups in residence:
