Growth Factory

Capital, tools, and expert mentorship to accelerate world-class founders and their companies from MVP to product-market fit, venture-backed, and beyond.


The Backyard Advantage™️

The Greater Sacramento region is rich in the talent and resources required to foster high growth startups.  By rallying and coordinating these resources in support of local founders, we believe that world class companies can be cultivated in our own backyard.

Our  Dream Team of top tier mentors, investors, partners, and experienced entrepreneurs will not only provide knowledge and expertise but offer community, camaraderie and fun.

We believe that nobody builds a truly great company alone.  But, with commitment, grit, targeted resources, and the right people – anything is possible.

The Growth Factory Accelerator

We help early stage startups rapidly progress from minimum viable product (MVP) to product market fit.  Then, we work with them to build the funding case and leadership capacity to attract the capital and team needed to support scaling a high growth company.
