Google for Startups has awarded Austin-based Omaiven, which does workflow automation for clinic operations, $150,000 in cash and additional support services.
It also awarded $150,000 to DataScope, a San Antonio-based startup that leverages mobile technology to revolutionize data collection and deliver real-time insights to any industry.
“Google for Startups Latino Founders signifies a validation of our efforts and mission,” Nicolas Serrano, co-founder, DataScope, said in a news release. “We will utilize this support to enhance our safety and quality assurance solutions.”
The grants are part of Google for Startups Black Founders Fund and the second Latino Founders Fund.
Altogether six startups in Texas received grants totaling $900,000.
“In 2020, we launched our first Google for Startups Black Founders Fund to help Black tech entrepreneurs overcome the disproportionate hurdles they face when raising capital,” Lisa Gevelber, VP of Google for Startups, said in a news release. “Over the past three years, we’ve significantly expanded the scope of our work, expanding our Black Founders Fund to Europe, Africa, and Brazil, and to Latino founders in the US.”
Google for Startups has now provided $45 million in cash awards to 547 promising entrepreneurs through its Black and Latino Founders Funds.
In addition to the cash awards, entrepreneurs will receive up to $100,000 in Google Cloud credits, and they will also receive mentorship from Googlers, along with other resources such as sales training, investor proper, mental health coaching, and community offerings at no cost.
The support from Google will accelerate Omaiven’s growth and deepen collaborations with clinic and hospital partners to develop new AI-powered workflows that unlock time for healthcare teams, according to Jerold McDonald, CEO of Omaiven Health, said in a news release.
