AngelPad is an American seed-stage startup incubator. It was launched in September 2010 by Thomas Korte with six former Google employees. AngelPad provides mentor-ship, seed investment and networking at two 10-week courses per year. AngelPad gained attention when in August 2011 it announced that each of its startups will be given the option to accept $100,000 from two venture capital firms at the start of their class. AngelPad claims that they are different from other incubators because of the following reasons. They claim:
- Running a small & focused program – about 12 start-ups per session

- Working full time in the same office, not just during a few office hours
- Access to true Silicon Valley insiders – not just for a dinner speech
