End of Google Local Event Swag

As of July 2015, Google for Entrepreneurs will be discontinuing event level swag for Startup Weekend events. This change has no effect on the Google Cloud credit available to participants. We have found that delivering swag items around the world has been costly and environmentally taxing. Therefore, we collectively decided that the financial resources used for swag would be better spent on projects that help further Startup Weekend and Google for Entrepreneurs initiatives. We’re currently working together to find better ways to use their resources for event level support and to help increase the value of your event.


Google for Entrepreneurs is a valuable and supportive partner and we look forward to having them involved in the community in even more ways moving forward. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on your event and are here to help with any questions you may have about other swag vendors, resources, and general inquiries. As always, you can reach us at help@techstars.com.
