The Hatchery

Located on Cal Poly’s campus in Building 2, Room 206, the CIE Hatchery is a student incubator, where students from all colleges and majors come together to gain hands-on experience launching a company. Through mentorship, weekly workshops and startup assignments, student entrepreneurs receive the resources they need to iterate faster and to find a sustainable startup business model. In addition, students develop essential entrepreneurial skills in coachability, goal setting, communication and leadership.

The Hatchery is open to all Cal Poly students interested in learning how to take a business from idea generation to launch.
