AngelPad, the startup incubator launched by seven ex-Googlers in August 2010, is taking a look back at how far it’s come in the months since and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. So far, AngelPad has helped 37 companies get off the ground, but it wasn’t until this year that things really got going: 29 of those 37 startups emerged from AngelPad’s incubator in 2011 alone.
Out of the 37 companies, 31 have received funding, totaling just over $25 million.

According to AngelPad founder Thomas Korte, whose start-up incubator has turned out a little more 20 companies, a significant number of AngelPad companies have taken funding from Google Ventures, though many of them remain unannounced.
That relationship is not an accident; Korte and the other AngelPad advisers were all formerly early Google executives.
The 13 companies ranged widely but mobile was a big part of many of the companies, from app development tools to mobile dating. Lead generation was also a theme, from insurance leads to local merchant leads. AngelPad’s last batch of companies in November was selected from the partners’ network of contacts, so 60% of the companies were started by ex-Googlers.Forbes
