00,000 in credit and 24/7 support for eligible startups.

Focus on building your product and don’t worry about complex infrastructure. Google manages your application, database, and storage servers so you don’t have to.

>This is just Google’s form of semi-automatic due diligence. Instead of them having to carefully vet each startup, determine that they’re actually getting work done and are a real company and have at least some tiny bit of potential, they’ll just defer to the accelerators and incubators to decide on that.
Remember they’re giving away 00,000 of credit for free, so they have to make sure it’s not being squandered.
I also agree that incubators and accelerators should never be seen as necessary to create a successful startup, and I don’t think Google is claiming that either. This is just how they’re handling risk. Remember this is a new platform for Google to make money, they’re not just giving it away as charity.[MeowFace](https://news.ycombinator.com/user?id=meowface)
