All governments have realized by now that the greatest source of economic prosperity is the entrepreneurs. Hence, countries, states, regions, cities are setting up their own incubators and accelerators to support them. Economic development agencies in various countries, states, cities are actively working on building entrepreneurship eco-systems around the world.
1M/1M works with government incubators and ED agencies anywhere in the world and helps them gain access to Silicon Valley’s eco-system and methodology.
1M/1M also offers scale to government incubators who often have limited capacity. To develop a community into a thriving entrepreneurial hub, hundreds of entrepreneurs needs to be nurtured. By partnering with 1M/1M, governments can vastly expand their capacity to support a larger number of entrepreneurs.
1M/1M also offers reach. If a government incubator is headquartered in one city, and wants to open additional branches in five other locations, it is easy to do so with 1M/1M because of the virtual structure of the program.
1M/1M’s Incubator-in-a-Box offering can help any government to rapidly create a large, multi-location incubator with deep ties into Silicon Valley.

Note: Here are a few videos explaining the 1M/1M program in more depth:
We are working with many corporate partners, helping their eco-systems with incubation support, including SAP, Oracle, Rackspace, Microsoft, Nokia, Elance, TradeKing, A&N Media, BlueSnap, etc. Nothing is too small for us. No geography is not of interest to us. Wherever, and at whatever scale you would like to build your accelerator, we look forward to working with you shoulder to shoulder.
Typically, we work with EDOs and support our partners in raising sponsorship to run such joint incubation programs.
