Applications for the AngelPad Funds For Start-ups is ongoing. If you are an entrepreneur, this is your chance to access funding.
The AngelPad Funds programme is a seed-stage accelerator programme based in NYC and San Francisco. Since 2010 they have launched more than 150 companies. Every 6 months they select about 15 teams from a vast pool of applicants (usually around 2000) to work with them.
While other accelerators have decided to “scale” and take on more and more companies or launch more and more cities, AngelPad has stayed true to its original goal, which is:
“Find awesome companies with founders we like to work with and spend three very intense months with them.”
This focus has paid off, AngelPad has risen to be the number 1 Accelerator in the U.S. (based on an actual study from MIT/Brown University), and Strictly V.C. called us the “Anti-Y Combinator “.
During the program, they work on everything from finding product-market fit, defining a target market, and getting the company’s first validation. They are also instrumental in helping companies prepare for fundraising and, of course, for investor meetings.
Eligibility For The Angelpad Funds
Entrepreneurs from any country can apply for the AngelPad funds.
Benefits Of The Angelpad Funds
- Mentorship: Mentorship is at the core of AngelPad and they don’t believe in the “one-size-fits-all” advice that founders often get. At AngelPad, Carine and Thomas work alongside the startup founders. They roll up their sleeves and figure stuff out – everything – together with the founders.
- Funding: Starting a company costs money. They invest $120,000 in each company. Startups also have access to more than $300,000 in cloud credits from AWS, Google, and Digital Ocean.
- Community: Working, not just alongside them, but with the other founders of the cohort will become the foundation of your support system. Being a founder can be tough, few people understand what you go through. AngelPad is there for you during and after the program and founders often form strong fellow entrepreneur ties that subside long after they exit AngelPad
- Investors: Getting funded is a key component of startups’ success and a core focus at AngelPad. They know most investors; they know what they invest in and what gets them excited. Investors know them and the quality of companies emerging from AngelPad. Being an AngelPad company opens many doors.
