Silicon Valley

In its partnership with founding sponsors Franklin Templeton and Royal Bank of Canada, EvoNexus is bringing startups to where the money is — Silicon Valley.

In 2019, we launched the Silicon Valley Fintech Incubator in 2019, in a purpose-build facility on the Franklin Templeton campus in San Mateo, CA.

Franklin Templeton provides seed capital (SAFE) to most startups admitted to the Silicon Valley FinTech Incubator. 

The 13,000 sq. ft. custom-built incubator features state-of-the-art facilities, offices, and amenities, and our collaborative space is specially designed to meet the needs of startups and cultivate innovation.

Virtual

Our virtual program accepts applications from anywhere in North America, allowing start-ups the flexibility to stay where they currently reside, all while reaping unique benefits from our program. Regardless of location, EvoNexus strives to accelerate innovative technology by providing the same proven long-term residency experience, resources and support using video conferencing and several other tools to guide startups towards longstanding success. Companies from outside the US or Canada will only be admitted if championed by an EvoNexus Strategic Sponsor.
