For the past three decades, serious technology entrepreneurs have come to Silicon Valley to seek help with their early-stage businesses. Ms. Sramana Mitra, the owner of this blog, founded the One Million by One Million program (1M/1M) so that they wouldn’t need to come to Silicon Valley.
1M/1M is a global initiative that aims to nurture a million entrepreneurs worldwide reach a million dollars each in annual revenue and beyond by 2020, thereby creating a trillion dollars in global GDP and ten million jobs.
1M/1M supplements regional economic development resources with Silicon Valley’s expertise, methodology, and connections.
The 1M/1M platform allows entrepreneurs worldwide to stay home and get the same quality of help and connections that is available to those entrepreneurs based in Silicon Valley.
Being part of 1M/1M, entrepreneurs worldwide don’t have to spend money on relocation. They can even keep their day job until they are ready to work on their own business full time. When they succeed, they will contribute to their local economy, not Silicon Valley’s.
If you would like to learn more about the program, please join us at the next 1M/1M Strategy Roundtable any Thursday. Everyone is welcome.
Note: The 1M/1M team has invested significant resources to engage with and understand the challenges of the Incubator industry around the globe. You can sign up for our opt-in mailing list to get this information via email on an ongoing basis.
