Launchpads & Accelerators
Housing-Focused Launchpads & Accelerators
Startup accelerators, also known as seed accelerators, are typically intensive short-term, cohort-based programs for early-stage business models and companies, which typically include seed investment, connections, sales, mentorship, educational components, and culminate in a public pitch event or demo day to all help accelerate company growth.
The diversity of accelerators and incubators in the Los Angeles and Bay Area regions illustrates the depth of technology talent within the community. For those who have a million-dollar idea and the need for the funding, mentorship, and a program to take it to the next level, a start-up accelerator is the place to start.
Many accelerator programs now operate within the housing market – helping launch the next big thing in housing. See the list of relevant housing-focused accelerator programs below.
