AngelPad is a mentorship program founded by ex-Googler Thomas Korte to help web-technology startups build better products, attract additional funding and ultimately grow more successful businesses
Twice a year, we provide an extensive mentorship program to carefully selected startups, during the course of 10 weeks, in our San Francisco (in the Spring) and New York (in the Fall) offices.
The 10 weeks program covers all aspects of a company launch – from idea to product, market fit, customer acquisition and fundraising. We also take care of the less glamorous things like incorporation, immigration visas or fundraising documents.
A strong emphasis is also put on helping founders to prepare for demo day, which occurs towards the end of each program and allows companies to present their idea/vision/product to several hundred investors.
During the course of the program, we also receive guest speakers and host several events as different as intensive “angel days” and relaxed mingling happy hours.
The program does not end at demo day though. Mentors are extremely involved in helping startups in their fundraising efforts. All founders also become part the AngelPad alumni network.
What’s unique about AngelPad?
- Small program (about 12 start-ups) allowing for very personalized mentoring
- Strong emphasis on product development and market fit
- Mentors strongly involved in fundraising
- Office space provided, fostering a community spirit within founders and facilitating access to mentors
