Google, Savannah join hands; more opportunities for small business on its way

Published on April 1, 2018

One of the most popular phrases of the recent past is “Google it.” However, the search giant’s most famous platform is not only limited to searching for television series spoilers and celebrities. It appears that the firm has now expanded the range of services that they have to offer.

The company will now be offering an entire arsenal of free digital tools. These tools are essentially targeted towards helping anyone who is interested in growing their online platform through Google’s new initiative, Grow. “We launched (Grow with Google) in October to help create economic opportunities for Americans,” said Stephen Brokaw, Google’s Community Engagement Manager.


The Google officials have reportedly been touring the country and holding workshops wherein they are teaching communities about the different tools that are available for them. The showcase includes free technology curriculum for teachers, which is an interactive lesson-based mobile app specifically for small business owners and marketing lessons aimed towards startups.

The company is expected to make a stop in Savannah at the Service Brewing Company on April 25. “We have a presence in Georgia. We have a data center in Douglas County and an office in Atlanta, and we know Georgia is a great place to work,” Brokaw said. “And lastly, we know Savannah has an incredible ecosystem of collaborative organizations that make it a perfect place to bring Grow with Google,” he further added.

As far as the Savannah event is concerned, the Google officials are gearing up towards providing more opportunities to small business owners. They will be showing attendees how they can take advantage of the internet to grow. “We’ll have the workshop where they’ll learn basic things like the introduction to online marketing, how to get found on Google search and Google Maps and then they can talk to Google employees,” he said of the event.
