The area of focus for the Community Startup Incubator program at the SLO HotHouse is to support tech and innovation startups, specifically startups launched by entrepreneurs whose business focus is on innovation. The innovation typically involves new technology or new uses of existing technology. The technology is based on intellectual property (IP) or a new application of existing IP contributing to a strong competitive advantage in the marketplace, serving as a foundation for a high rate of growth.

Please answer all questions in the application. If you have any questions, please contact Incubator Director Judy Mahan at or call the SLO HotHouse at (805) 756-5171.
