2018 SLO HotHouse Accelerator Companies Will Be Announced!

Meet the newest students accepted into our SLO HotHouse Summer Accelerator program as they set off
on their adventure to launch a startup in only 13 weeks.


PEN Portion
The Business Card Hustle
We divided the P.E.N. (Pitches, Exhibits, and Networking) portion of the evening into two parts. First, attendees will hear pitches from each of the 2018 SLO HotHouse Accelerator companies, getting to know both the companies and their goals for the summer. Following the pitches, each Accelerator company will hustle for resources by collecting as many business cards from attendees as possible. The team with the most cards at the end of the night will walk away with a special prize.

Moderated By: Dr. Jonathan York
