Access to Google, when you need it.

Our relationship with Google means unique access and expertise for our portfolio. But we operate independently from Google, so your intellectual property and product roadmaps always stay confidential.

Workshops & events

We frequently organize portfolio-only events where you get exclusive access to Googlers from across the company.
