South East BIC client TUCR is adopted by Google!

Tucr, the Waterford-based mobile partial payments platform has been chosen take part in Google’s 2017 Adopt a Startup Programme, a 12 week mentoring programme that leverages the skills and expertise of Google EMEA Consultants with high potential start-up companies.

The programme provides skill based mentoring to these companies. It offers lectures on a variety of topics such as Google Adwords, Google Analytics and Design Thinking and helps companies structure for scale. The Startups meet their Google Support teams multiple times throughout the 12 weeks to discuss business strategies put in place in order to get the most out of the programme for the Startup. Back in late 2016, Tucr applied to be a part of this programme, with over 100 other entries from around Ireland. Not only are they the only start up from Waterford in the programme, they’re flying the flag for the whole South East. There are 30 other start-up companies working with the programme – 25 from Dublin, three from Kerry and two from Galway.

Three of Google Ireland’s Digital Consultants at their HQ are mentoring Tucr and with their help, they will be working on making Tucr bigger and better for retailers and shoppers and have set ourselves goals to achieve this over the 12 week programme. 

The Launch Party for the program was at Google HQ in Dublin on the 17th of January. It gave Startups the opportunity to meet their Google Support team that they will be working with. It also allowed for the Startup to network and get to know others involved in the competition.
