The Accelerate With Google program has various partners, including the US Black Chamber, and is designed to get more minority businesses online.

Google makes a large chunk of its revenue through selling advertisements, and the company wants black businesses to partake.

In partnership with various business organizations, including the U.S. Black Chamber, Greater Austin Black Chamber, and The Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce, Google is asking minority-owned businesses to join its Accelerate With Google program.

In the 12-week course, Google will show businesses how to create website landing pages, manage Google AdWords to advertise their business, and manage marketing campaigns.

The program is beneficial to businesses as well as Google. More businesses using Google’s services gives the search company more data to mine, and helps it provide more granular data to people searching for businesses.

To apply, you’ll have to answer a few questions about your business, including how much you spend on marketing (if anything).

If you’re interested, check out the site here. But don’t waste any time in applying. The deadline is Wednesday, May 28, so go for it.
