VU alumni tech startup selected by Google’s Black Founder Fund

June 28, 2021

Recently, Google for Startups announced that startup – co-founded by VU Amsterdam alumni International Business Administration Michael Musandu and Ugnius Rimsa – was one of the 30 selected for Google’s Black Founder Fund. Lalaland generates and hyper personalizes fully human body models using Artificial Intelligence. In October 2020, the Google for Startups Black Founders Fund announced a $2 million initiative to provide funding to black entrepreneur-led startups in Europe. This support means a lot to Michael Musandu: ‘Receiving this investment will help us accelerate Lalaland’s mission of diversity and inclusion’.
