HotHouse Startup Accelerator

Take the leap! There is no better time than the summer to make your startup a reality. The HotHouse Startup Accelerator is a 13-week summer program designed to give you everything you need to launch a real, scalable company.

Exclusively for Cal Poly students and alumni, the accelerator draws from a diverse alumni 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.
