Four startups will receive mentorship, funding and first-pass access to Google for Entrepreneurs programming when they take up residence in the Google innovation space at the Communitech Hub this week.

In its third iteration, the popular program provides companies with six months of co-working space, enrolment in the Communitech Business Fundamentals course and direct access to Google experts. Startups who have taken advantage of the program include alumni  like collaborative video app Clipter, “API for the universe” SkyWatchFundmetric, which provides a way for charities connect with donors and stakeholders, and Aterlo Networks, which provides high quality streaming without buffering.
