Web 3.0 Adoption: Celo Foundation, Google Cloud to Help Sustainability-Focused Startups to Develop Web3 Apps

The Celo Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Google Cloud in order to bolster the growth of mission-aligned projects in Celo’s blockchain ecosystem and to expand the early adoption of Google Cloud services.

As cLabs’ preferred Cloud provider, Google Cloud’s secure and sustainable cloud infrastructure has “underpinned the development of the Celo Platform since 2018.”

Building on the success of this collaboration, Google Cloud joins Celo Foundation’s robust founders’ programs by “providing founders building on Celo with credits for Google Cloud and Firebase usage.”

Xochitl Cazador, the Celo Foundation’s Head of Ecosystem Growth, said:

“As the first Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain to be carbon-negative, Celo is known as Web3’s ‘Home of ReFi,’ or regenerative finance, with 1,000+ projects providing real-world benefits in over 150 countries., Our partnership with Google Cloud will help developers and Web3 founders building on the Celo blockchain build and scale their applications on the industry’s cleanest cloud.”

Strengthening Celo Foundation’s Founders’ Program

The Google Cloud core team will also “provide guidance to the Celo Foundation’s Founders in Residence program, and the eight-week virtual Celo Camp accelerator, joining Twilio SendGrid, HubSpot, and Coinbase Cloud in offering project support.”

Richard Widmann, Head of Strategy, Web3, Google Cloud, said:

“Google Cloud is focused on enabling the next wave of innovation in Web3, which is why we’re excited to expand our partnership with Celo to offer Google Cloud credits and guidance for their builder community. Working with Celo and the Web3 startup community, we look forward to driving forward Google Cloud’s vision of enabling secure, scalable, and sustainable innovation through technology.”

Partnering on Sustainability & Innovation

The Celo Foundation and Google Cloud aim “to co-host targeted workshops and events around Web3 sustainability and innovation.”

To date, over 3,700 tons of CO2 have reportedy “been offset by the Celo blockchain since its mainnet launch on Earth Day 2020, and has been carbon-negative since Day 1.”
