Favor co-founders Ben Doherty and Zac Maurais graduated from the CIE SLO HotHouse in August of 2012. Their app-based service allows customers to get anything they want delivered to their door in under an hour.

“The SLO Hothouse taught us important entrepreneurial lessons and supported us immensely in the early days,” said Maurais. “We’re very grateful for the community they’ve created.”

Whether it’s a tasty dinner from a top restaurant or essentials from the convenience store, Favor’s network of personal assistants can deliver whatever you need in just a couple taps.

Currently, Favor is available in 20 cities across the country, and the company has raised over $30M in funding to fuel their explosive growth. Based in Austin, TX, Favor boasts nearly 200 employees.

“We created a fun and flexible way for people to earn extra money,” said Doherty. “With over 16,000 runners on our platform, it’s rewarding to see how many awesome people are using what we’ve built.”
