There used to be a time when mothers wanted nothing more than to stay home and raise their children. While this is still the case to a certain extent, many moms want to get back in the working world or do something in business on their own. There is one problem with this: they don’t often times have the direction necessary to get the job done. This is where Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is stepping in and lending some help (as it does a lot of the time).
In a recent blog post, Google talks about its Campus for Moms which is a nice group meant to assist women entrepreneurs in Israel. Here is what you need to know:
“Campus for Moms is a baby-friendly start-up school for new moms, run by Google in partnership with Yazamiyot, a networking group for Israeli women entrepreneurs. The first course, which ended this week, included nine sessions led by successful entrepreneurs, investors, technology experts and others. The sessions covered personal success stories, finance, legal and presentation skills, and tech knowledge, like cloud computing. We arranged mattresses, bean bags and diaper-changing facilities so that the moms could take care of their young ones during the sessions. Four babies were born during the course and one new mum returned to the program less than a week after giving birth!”
As you can see, this program was meant to help mothers who are interested in rejoining the business world. This is just one of the many programs Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) takes part in, all with the idea of helping others.
In the years to come, it will be interesting to see if the search engine giant rolls this out in other countries throughout the world. It goes without saying that it would be a big hit almost everything, as women are always looking for this type of assistance.
At the end of this Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) course, participants had the chance to present their ideas to venture capitalists as well as the speakers who took part in the program. Here is more from the piece:
“Their ideas are exciting—including a platform for teachers to create apps for their students, a fashion-tech meet up to encourage cooperation between local fashion-related start-ups, a 2G mobile ecommerce gateway for emerging markets and a bunch of other great initiatives.”
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and its baby-friendly start-up school is becoming more and more popular in Israel. Should we expect to see this in other countries in the future?
