The HotHouse celebrated its grand opening with a special ribbon cutting ceremony with the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce.
The HotHouse is a new community space that has been created through the efforts of Cal Poly, the San Luis Obispo Community, and the Cal Poly Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The goal of the HotHouse is to support students and community members alike as they work to create new innovations and start business ventures.
San Luis Obispo is becoming more open to supporting new innovations and growing companies, and the HotHouse is the physical space in which those ideas can launch. This space, coupled with the combined resources of the Cal Poly Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship and the Cal Poly Small Business Development Center for Innovation, provide growing companies unparalleled opportunities for success.
The HotHouse Incubator Project is guided by the HotHouse Steering Committee – a collaboration of area business leaders, city representatives and Cal Poly staff who will work to provide facilities and programming in a start-up bootstrapping culture to our target audience – the innovators, creative, technical and business talent who form and support successful teams and relationships.
The HotHouse is located at 955 Morro Street in downtown San Luis Obispo. For more information please visit their website here.
