13. Upwest Labs is an Israel-focused incubator, focusing on startups that bridge the gap between Palo Alto & Tel-Aviv.
14. Plug & Play Tech Center is a pioneering, well-thought out model for startup incubation. Billed as “Silicon Valley In-A-Box,” Plug & Play may be unmatched in Silicon Valley for how they’ve exported their model to the rest of the world.
15. The Founder’s Institute is a Mt View & San Francisco based incubator with dozens of branches all over the world, dedicated to “Globalizing Silicon Valley.”
16. Innospring is the first and biggest Chinese-focused startup incubator in the Bay Area. Hosting events on a regular basis, it is a gateway to highly valuable attention & resources for anyone serious about success & growth.
17. Vodafone Xone is a relatively new incubator & accelerator in Redwood City. “Where collaboration & innovation unite,” It’s a space where qualified startups can get the attention you’d receive at a world class incubator such as this. But on top of that, Xone is able to offer the full suite of testing tools available to Vodafone. Currently a 45% stakeholder in Verizon, Vodafone enables startups to have an easy way to test new prototypes on a wide range of devices.
18. 500 Startups is one of the biggest incubators in the Bay Area. Offering funding up to the $250K range to startup applicants, it was one of the first, and is definitely a key player in the tech world here in the Bay Area.
19. Startup Weekend is an active incubator in the Bay Area, almost always with a big event right around the corner. Headquartered in Seattle and with branches in Europe and Mexico, as well as the Bay Area, it hosts events where entrepreneurs build businesses over the course of a weekend.
