    Google offers new tools, support for startups
    Google on Monday launched a website filled with tools to help startups and announced partnerships to promote entrepreneurship that it kicked off with a Startup Weekend at its Mountain View campus.
    This marked the official launch of Google For Entrepreneurs, an effort that search giant has been working on for the past year.
    In an official blog post on Monday morning, Google said it wants to partner with more strong organizations like Startup Weekend in local communities that connect its resources with entrepreneurs.
    A new partnership was announced with Women 2.0, a San Francisco-based group that promotes and supports female founders. Google and the group plan to bring a series of "Founder Friday" meetups to cities around the world.
    Founder Friday events draw an average of 350 attendees and take place on the first Friday of every month. The first ones backed by Google are set for Nov. 16 in Detroit and Mexico City.
    At this past weekend's local kickoff event, more than 100 hackers and entrepreneurs worked from early Friday night until late Sunday night to produce viable businesses at Google Ventures' Startup Lab.
    It was one of 15 Startup Weekends that were going on around the country and one of two in the Bay Area, with the other happening in San Francisco.
