One of the best ways for a business incubator to leverage the 1M/1M Program is to organize meetups around our weekly roundtables, which are held at 8 a.m. Pacific time each Thursday.
If you are running an incubator, you know that producing consistently excellent programming is a lot of work. You have to get speakers, arrange logistics, deal with speaker cancellations, and so on. We know that too because we deal with it all the time.
Our 1M/1M Roundtables are FREE. They take place every week. Why not use that regular programming as a way to bring your entrepreneurs together and connect to Silicon Valley on a weekly basis?
You can project the roundtable on a large screen, invite entrepreneurs from your community to pitch, have them participate in the public chat, and share the energy and enthusiasm of a global entrepreneurship movement.
Whether you are in Maine or Madagascar, you need not feel left out. You can bring your entrepreneurs together in a 1M/1M meetup.
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.
