We have two great topics for the October Meetup:
## GCP for Startups Program
Eugene Yi from the GCP for Startups Team is going to talk about Google's program to help startups: what benefits you get as a startup company, how to qualify, and more. If you are involved with a startup and are interested in how you can better leverage GCP, come with your questions for Eugene.
## Introduction to GCP Fundamentals
Our Kubernetes, Istio, etc talks can sometimes seem too advanced for what you're working on. We realize that these topics aren't for everyone quite yet. Come learn about the basics of GCP and how it compare to other cloud providers: GCP projects vs AWS Accounts, IAM, GCE vs EC2, GCS vs S3, etc. If you have any questions about how GCP works but have been afraid to ask, this is your chance!
