Google Buys Contextual Rich News Browsing Startup Apture To

Postby Andrew on Thu Nov 10, 2011 11:51 pm

Google has agreed to support the folks behind Startup Weekend to jumpstart and foster startup communities from around the world.

Through a global sponsorship, the search and online advertising juggernaut will enable the expansion of Startup Weekend’s current operations, but there’s a bit more to the story than just that.

The alliance will also facilitate the worldwide rollout of pre-Startup Weekend Google developer workshops and – allow me to quote from the briefing I got – ‘vertical specific initiatives in areas such as education and health’.

: here’s Google’s blog post about the partnership:
“Started in early 2008, there are now more than 280 GTUGs in 86 countries that bring tech enthusiasts together via hundreds of events each month.

GTUG members will receive discounted registration for Startup Weekend events and will help run pre-weekend local bootcamps on Google’s developer platforms and tools (e.g., App Engine, Android, Chrome).”
