Southern California’s leading startup technology incubator
We enable motivated entrepreneurs to turn their transformative ideas into fundable, commercially-viable companies
Unlike other accelerator models that churn through start-up cohorts in 3-4 month intensive programs, we incubate companies for an average of 18 months. We know that startups need longer-term support on their path to sustainability.
