All 1Mby1M entrepreneurs are eligible for investor introductions when they are ready for such introductions. If you are fundraising for your startup see the Investor Introductions page on how it works at the 1Mby1M Accelerator.


“1Mby1M is a very helpful program, and Sramana is very well connected in the industry. When we were looking to talk to investors, Sramana introduced us to multiple investors, and also acted as an advisor helping us navigate complex term sheet clauses like tranche financing and liquidation preferences. 1Mby1M also helped us win the $40,000 Microsoft BizSpark Startup Challenge Grant by helping us refine our pitch, market sizing analysis, and other details. I would enthusiastically recommend the 1Mby1M program for first time entrepreneurs and technical founders who need help with understanding other aspects of running a business.” – Girish Mathrubootham,  Founder & CEO at Freshworks – Raised $484 Million in Funding and went Public on Nasdaq with a $10B+ Valuation

We recommend using the 1Mby1M Self-Assessment tool to prioritize the Curriculum modules that are most relevant for you.

Media Relations

All 1Mby1M entrepreneurs can be featured when they are ready on the 1Mby1M Incubation Radar (IR) — a series we publish on our blog. Investors, analysts, media, and corporate M&A teams monitor these stories regularly.

If you are a 1Mby1M entrepreneur, it will add to your credibility when you are approaching a journalist or an analyst on your own.

And you can leverage 1Mby1M’s well-established social media presence on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to distribute your news updates for a higher chance to be noticed by customers and investors.

Learning Pace

Pick your own pace — you have a full year. The Core Curriculum takes about 50 hours to get through. You also have access to over 500 hours of material across multiple Electives.

Fresh Ideas

Entrepreneurs at the 1Mby1M Accelerator get fresh ideas, refine their strategy, course-correct as they go through the video lectures, and case studies, all based on the experiences of over 1,000 successful entrepreneurs including 100+ Unicorns.


Be reasonable about your expectations. The 1Mby1M Accelerator will only deliver the results for your business if you do your part.

Be ready for direct feedback on your idea and strategy. If your idea or strategy is no good, please get ready to hear that and then course correct with support and help from 1Mby1M.

We are always on your side and do recommend that you have the safe vetting of your idea done at 1Mby1M, rather than waste years of your life and all of your savings on trying to implement a poor concept or getting continuous, painful rejections from investors, which is, unfortunately, so common. We’d rather see you not subjecting yourself to this unnecessary emotional turmoil.
