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.

The Summer HotHouse Accelerator program applications will open again in early 2021.
