Six Startups Join Google Adopt-a-Startup Program


We are very excited to announce that six Zahn startups (Active Hands, dawaCare, Function Cosmetics, nuravine, Ouvos, and Wrkbook) will participate in an “Adopt-a-Startup program at Google. Over the next few months, Google mentors and startups will produce a marketing an customer acquisition strategy, with the results shared at a group presentation at Google in early December.

Google mentors will help the startups define their KIPs, achieve set milestones, and utilize Google Analytics and Adwords.

Each startup will work closely with two to three Google mentors. Below is a list of each startup’s mentors, especially chosen and paired to match the startup’s specific needs.

Active Hands – Jason Stroot, Chadwick Kales, and Ally Gotz

dawaCare – Jason Leder and Justin Nabozna

Function Cosmetics – Jenna Hovel and Paul Younis

nuravine – Alex Holz and Julianna Gaudio

Ouvos – Dmitry Mazilo, Stephanie Hofmann, and Sahil Khanna

Wrkbook – Michael Sondak, Keith Butler, and Leeor Baskin


Startups meet with their mentors at least once a week. We’ll share more about this program as we near the finale in December!
