    Description:

    Founded in 2012, the Fabric is an incubator located near Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA with an interest in networking, cloud, and mobile computing startups. Through the initial stage, the Fabric engages with entrepreneurs to help them refine their product concept. Once there is a viable business model, the firm provides seed financing of $1M to $1.5M, and actively works with the entrepreneurs for six months. After the six months, the company will have a complete team, an advanced prototype, market validation, and a business plan. To date, the Fabric has created three startups: one has raised Series A funding, one is close to getting a Series A and the third is just starting. The Fabric will put $1.5 million to $2 million in seed funding into a company and will show it to other seed investors if more seed funding is needed. It will also help raise money from venture capitalists.
