Incubator-in-a-Box for Angel Investors

Today, most angel investors work very closely with the incubators to stay connected to the deal flow. But there is also the danger of missing strong investment opportunities because VCs are doing deals with incubators, and short-circuiting the process. For example, Sequoia, Andreessen Horowitz, and General Catalyst have all done deals with YCombinator to seed fund entire batches of incubatee companies. This leaves no room for angel investors to play.

But, most angel investors have much to offer in terms of mentoring, domain knowledge, hands-on guidance, networks, etc. to their portfolios. But they would prefer to invest their limited time and resources on promising entrepreneurs that have gone through some basic level of incubation.

What if 1M/1M can help each angel investor or angel group create your own custom incubator?


1M/1M’s Incubator-in-a-Box offering can help you launch your own incubator with deep ties into Silicon Valley.


  • Choose the scale at which you wish to start. You can incubate 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, or 200 entrepreneurs.
  • Choose one or more locations (or global is fine too).
  • 1M/1M will provide the base-level incubation to these entrepreneurs through the Premium Program. This includes online curriculum, mentoring / strategy consulting, introductions to customers, channel partners, investors, and access to the 1M/1M media and social media channels.
  • Partner can add any amount of additional resources on top, including funding, real-estate, mentoring, network, legal services, accounting services, etc. First right of refusal for any investment opportunity, naturally, rests with the partner.
  • 1M/1M will run contests and help partner recruit the entrepreneurs to bring into their custom portfolio.
  • 1M/1M will also screen the best performers from the incubation portfolio for partner to invest further resources in, after a few months of incubation.

How Much?

  • The 1M/1M Incubator-in-a-Box costs $1000/entrepreneur/year. So, if you incubate 50 entrepreneurs with us, that would cost $50k for a year.
  • We do not take ANY equity, making us the most entrepreneur- (and investor- ) friendly incubator program on the planet. Most incubators take 5-10% equity. Angels come into a clean term sheet with minimum dilution.
  • The ROI we deliver is equivalent to $375k + 5-10% Equity per entrepreneur.

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, various TiE chapters, colleges and universities, 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 incubator, we look forward to working with you shoulder to shoulder.
