Growth Factory


The Growth Factory provides pre-seed stage companies with investment and 12 months of structured support.

Each startup begins by creating a customized action plan and is paired with a lead mentor who will serve as an accountability and thought partner throughout the program.  Workshops, founder forums, and office hours accelerate learning, connect founders with experts and resources, and provide community. Companies also participate in curated local pilot projects to support in testing their hypothesis, developing case studies, and building relationships with potential customers.

The Growth Factory is a proud member of the Global Accelerator Network (GAN). Through this network, we are able to provide access to global resources such as $1M in perks, founder wellness support, industry-specific mentors, and global hot desk spaces for teams to drop in and work while traveling.
