Edo’s Head of User Experience, Alex Barker was invited to join Google’s mentorship scheme at the beginning of 2016. Since then he’s been instilling user centred thinking and lean methodologies into start-up propositions. 

As part of his ongoing collaboration with Google as a mentor, Alex has been invited to Launchpad Start, a week-long boot camp for early stage Ukrainian start-ups. They’ll be focussing on critical topics for start-ups: product strategy and business development, user experience, technology, marketing and presentation skills. 

Each day in the week-long event is dedicated to a specific topic and structured around overview talks and one-on-one mentoring sessions with international mentors from the Google Mentor Network, of which Alex is a part of. 

Google Launchpad Start is part of the Global Launchpad program. It provides startups in all stages with resources, online content, mentorship and training they need to succeed.
