Helping ex-Googlers launch successful startups & Googlers/Xooglers invest in them after 8+ years at Google
24 Xoogler-led startups presented to over 100 investors at Xoogler Demo Day hosted at Google’s San Francisco office
On Wednesday April 25, 2018, the Xoogler and Google communities came together to support 24 pre-seed and seed Xoogler-led startups as they presented to over 100 early stage investors and members of the press.
Most of the startups were from Silicon Valley but others flew in from London, Spain, New York, Houston, Denver and Los Angeles to present at Xoogler Demo Day. Please reach out to them if you are interested in investing in their startup or are interested in being a user or customer.
We have Xoogler Demo Days in Los Angeles on May 22 organized by David Bos, Singapore on June 4 organized by Anne Caron and London organized by Rune Bentien coming up.
If you’re a startup, reach out to them to participate and investors, please fill in the investor forms for Los Angeles, Singapore and London to attend.
Xoogler.co was started in 2015 to support ex-Google founders. We held 200 events in 2017 to connect Xooglers and Googlers with each other and with helpful partner organizations. Xooglers and Googlers can sign up at Xoogler.co to be part of the community and receive the newsletters. If you’re interested in partnering to support these and other early stage Xoogler founders, please reach out to us via email@example.com.
