Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

HotHouse Startup Accelerator

The HotHouse Startup Accelerator is a summer program designed to give you everything you need to launch a real, scalable company.

Exclusively for Cal Poly students and recent alumni, the accelerator draws from a diverse pool of mentors and speakers in the startup world. In addition to hands-on mentorship and weekly workshops, companies in the accelerator program will have access to $10,000 in seed funding to start building their business.

Throughout the program, companies will develop their business model, learn how to operate a business, and practice telling their story to pitch their company.

 We’re going virtual! Our final 2020 HotHouse Startup Accelerator info session will be held Tuesday, April 7, via Zoom starting at 6 p.m. The first student to join the online meeting will get a free pizza delivered to them. Tune in to learn how to gain $10K in startup funding.

The application deadline for the Summer HotHouse Accelerator program has been extended to Friday, April 24 by 11:59 p.m.
