Startup hubs and co-working spaces in seven North American cities — Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Durham, N.C., Minneapolis, Nashville and Waterloo, Ontario — will receive access to Google technology, like cloud storage and Google Maps, and financial support (not connected to equity stakes) from Google as part of a startup-focused network the search giant launched today.

Members of the network will also get access to mentors in Google leadership, opportunities to connect with each other and possibly an éntre to Google’s venture capital wing Google Ventures.

“If (that type of funding relationship) happens, great,” John Lyman, head of partnerships at the Google department that oversees the new network, told CNET. “But that’s not why we’re doing it.”
