WeatherCheck, 201 East Jefferson Street, Suite 315 in Louisville, monitors properties for hail damage so that insurance carriers, mortgage companies and property owners can take action.
Out of hundreds of applicants, 12 black-led startups made the cut for Google’s first U.S. based accelerator program, where they’ll virtually tackle technical and business development related challenges with the help of Google experts.
“Louisville is an up and coming startup community,” said Jason Scott, head of developer ecosystem in the U.S. for Google. “WeatherCheck embodies the community’s entrepreneurial spirit and uses technology for good – helping their users understand when they can use insurance for weather damage to their homes.”
In addition, as people look for ways to support the black community, there’s been a surge in searches for black-owned
businesses nationally, and in Louisville. To help consumers identify the local businesses they want to support, Solomon shared that Google is partnering with the U.S. Black Chambers Inc., to launch a black-owned business attribute on Google Search and Maps.
Solomon works to level the playing field for diverse startup founders and communities by connecting them with the best that Google’s products, connections and best practice has to offer.
In addition to her role at Google, Solomon is an advocate for representation in and access to the technology industry. She currently serves as managing partner at Collab Capital, an investment fund to connect black founders to the financial and social capital they need to build profitable businesses.
