The Grow with Google Digital Coaches program provides free digital skills training and coaching for entrepreneurs to help diverse small businesses reach new customers, thrive online, and grow.
Digital Coaches are entrepreneurs, small business owners, and community builders who have found their own success using digital tools. They have been hand-picked to share their insights, knowledge, and expertise they’ve gained with fellow business owners in their local communities.
Businesses can sign up for free local workshops for entrepreneurs at grow.google/digital-coaches. Simply find and click on a Digital Coach profile in, or near, your state.
Digital Coaches are based in 20 cities in the U.S., but offer training across their states. Google committed to expanding Digital Coaches to more communities as part of our company-wide racial equity commitments (June 2020). From Florida, Texas, and North Carolina; to California, New York, and more; we’re excited to continue to grow and serve diverse business owners across the country.
Google created the Digital Coaches program to help level the playing field for U.S. diverse small businesses that face digital divides and barriers to resources needed to grow online.
Google started running the Digital Coaches program in May 2017.
Digital Coach programming is free of cost.

Grow with Google workshops are open to, and meant to support, all small business owners. The Digital Coaches are part of the Grow with Google program, which is intended to help all Americans use digital tools to build their skills, careers and businesses.
Our Digital Coaches focus their outreach to diverse communities who historically had a more difficult time entering the digital space and face disproportionate barriers to economic opportunity. We provide online and in-person training, tools, and coaching that businesses need to grow and create more economic opportunity in their communities.
