Remy Meraz is one of 50 founders selected for the Google for Startups program focused on high-potential startups from LatinX entrepreneurs based in the U.S.
Los Angeles, CA — July 11, 2022 – Zella Life, an AI-driven coaching platform for individuals and corporate teams that are changing the future of work for professionals of color, today announced it was selected to join the first cohort of the Google for Startups LatinX Founders Fund, a $5 million initiative designed for LatinX founders who are building great companies yet are often locked out of access to the funding that is critical to their success.
“The Google for Startups Latino Founders Fund is enabling us to increase access to professional and personal development coaching for the BIPOC community,” said Remy Meraz, co-founder, and CEO of Zella Life. “Workplace diversity is a superpower, and the Fund’s support will enable us to onboard more businesses and individuals who are ready to increase professional development opportunities for everyone.”
The goal of this fund is to increase economic opportunity for promising Latino startup founders in the US, who receive a disproportionately low percentage of investment. In an effort to close the opportunity and wealth gap for Latinos, Google has launched a set of programs designed to open the doors to funding, training for the digital economy, and empowering communities. In addition to the $100K in cash, recipients will also receive hands-on programming and support from Google, deep mentorship from technical and business experts, access to free mental health therapy, as well as a vibrant community of fellow founders.
About Zella Life: Make workplace diversity your superpower with Zella Life, an on-demand coaching platform for individuals and corporate teams that is changing the future of work for professionals of color.
