This program supports founders at the earliest stage of their journey. This Two-month summer program works with both idea-stage and prototype-stage companies to build a defensible foundation toward a viable venture. Applications open in April to all UCLA students and alumni and will close May 31st.
The main goal of the summer incubator is to help first-time founders validate problem-solution fit, determine customer segment, and product-market fit. Upon completion of the incubator program, founders will develop a minimum viable product (MVP) and will be eligible to apply to the winter four-month, immersive Accelerator program that runs February – June.
