The Google Cloud Credit program has two tiers: the Start Tier, for enterprises founded within the past 5 years; and the Scale Tier, for companies launched within the last 10 years. However, the organizers of this program say they will also welcome applications from startups founded by women who do not neatly fit into either of these tiers.


These are the benefits that founders and startups whose applications are accepted will enjoy:
  • All applicants will become members of the UK-Nigeria Tech Hub Female Founders Community
  • Startups in the Start Tier will get up to $2,000 in Google Cloud credits, which will be valid for 2 years
  • Companies in the Scale Tier will receive up to $100,000 in Google Cloud credits in year 1, and up to an additional $100,000 in cloud credits in year 2
  • Note: Beneficiaries in the Start Tier will be eligible to apply for $100,000 credits once they exhaust the $2,000 credits
