Tania Marinich, Founding partner at TechMinsk and Imaguru founder and CEO
We are excited to kick off the TechMinsk Powered by Launchpad partnership to support promising Belarus startups. By connecting local tech talent to the international world-class network of mentors, TechMinsk seeks to foster the development of Belarus startup ecosystem.

One of the most important grounds for the success of tech teams from Belarus is a historically strong tech education in the country. By providing a high quality deal flow of tech startups, TechMinsk
is open for cooperation with all those who want to co-invest into scalable tech ventures from Belarus.
Google Developers Launchpad is a Google's global acceleration program that provides access to the best of the tech giant – a global network of mentors and advanced technologies – helping startups achieve new heights and become successfull. Entering the program will no doubt become an important milestone in TechMinsk's history that already includes 5+ years of notable work in startup acceleration.
Founded in 2013 with USAID support, TechMinsk has helped 125 startup teams in its 9 programs to build innovative tech companies. TechMinsk alumni gave birth to numerous internationally successful startups including MSQRD (acquired by Facebook, NSDQ:FB), FriendlyData (acquired by ServiceNow, NYSE:NOW), and PandaDoc (raised more than $20m).

Google Launchpad is thrilled to work with TechMinsk to grow Belarus' startup economy. Google doesn't take an equity stake in accelerator portfolio startups but instead focus on developing companies and their ecosystems over the long term. "Powered by Launchpad" is about empowering startup communities around the world through top accelerators, and helping them leverage each other for insights and resource sharing.
The "TechMinsk Powered by Google Developers Launchpad" initiative will put Belarus on the map of Google partner accelerators and connect TechMinsk to an elite group of the world's top accelerators. TechMinsk will also access insights from the company's Silicon Valley-based startup programs, and twenty years' worth of Google research and best practice insights on building businesses, products, and teams at massive scale.
