  1. Training/ Coaching
  2. Coworking
  3. E-learning
  4. Membership
  5. Coliving
  6. Commission on fund raising
  7. % Equity
  8. Grants
  9. Startup/ Corporate Consulting / matchmaking
  10. Community / membership
  11. Become an influencer media
  12. Startup factory
  13. Fablab / makerspaces to rent capacity use
  14. Events/ hackathons
