The cloud credits is a great way to bootstrap a tech startup that requires intensive computational power. At an early stage, cash is king for a tech startup. Having the credits is a huge saving--literally it saved us tens of thousands of dollars!
-Michelle Zhou, Co-Founder at Juji
The GCP credits have been awesome for us at IPinfo - they've allowed us to do a ton of prototyping and experimentation without worrying too much about what it's going to cost us. We've already created some new production datasets based on this experimentation, and we've started using new GCP services that we otherwise wouldn't have explored too!
-Ben Dowling, Founder at IPinfo.io
The cloud startup credits have been very impactful to my startup, they have significantly offset my R/D costs, and allowed me to get from idea to proof of concept in very short timeframe.
-Ryan Yard, Owner at ryracing
The GCP credits were absolutely vital for us. We're not just doing "machine learning", we're actually doing novel research, and there's no way to do that without a ton of computing power.

What Our Founders Say
How It Works
We understand founders are busy, so we offer a simplified, low-commitment experience. FFL Startup Accelerator does not take any equity. There is a $5,900 program fee per startup to cover the costs of running the program.
