Billseye app selected by Google to join $10 million initiative for Black startups

Alcide Honoré's Billseye app to receive $100,000 from Google's program focusing on startups founded by Black entrepreneurs

PR Newswire

ATLANTA, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Billseye, Inc, the world's first real-time mobile call billing solution joined the second cohort of the Google for Startups' Black Founders Fund, a $10 million initiative designed to financially support Black startup founders. Billseye, an Atlanta-based company, will receive $100,000 in non-dilutive capital.

"Since the first version of our product runs on Google's Android operating system, we jumped at the chance to develop a closer relationship with the company that created the world's largest mobile platform," says Billseye co-founder Alcide Honoré. "It also helps that the initiative provides mentorship, training, guidance, and resources for founders."

Billseye is a mobile application that automates billing for mobile calls by allowing users to identify billable incoming and outgoing client calls as soon as the call is answered or dialed. Billseye includes features like voice/text memos, contact importing, and call data exporting. As one of the select few high-potential startups promoted by Google for Startups nationwide, we are excited to leverage the funding award to spread our message to potential users and will help Billseye reach wider audiences.

Last year, Google for Startups granted 76 Black-led startups up to $100,000 in non-dilutive funding, helping them to keep their doors open amid the pandemic and grow their businesses. Beyond dollars, the fund includes technical support from Google's tools and teams, up to $120,000 in donated search Ads from Google.org, and nearly $100,000 in Google Cloud credits. Last year, founders who received awards went on to raise more than $50M in capital and 80% of recipients used the funding to create jobs.

"Black founders currently receive less than 1 percent of total VC funding," says Jewel Burks Solomon, Head of Google for Startups US. "We heard loud and clear from the previous fund recipients that Google for Startups has been crucial to their success not only through funding but through community, mentorship, network connections, and technical expertise."

Billseye has also earned a finalist spot from a group of 500 Atlanta-based startups in the ATL Startup Battle. This "Shark Tank '' style competition takes place on Thursday, October 21. Ten companies will have an opportunity to compete for $100,000, offering startups the chance to develop their ideas and launch their products or services with the guidance of seasoned mentors.
