Tech startup founders need not reside in Silicon Valley to grow their enterprises. The portfolio of companies incubated at the CVEP-managed Palm Springs iHub receive mentorship and other specialized services to support sustainable growth. Services offered at the Palm Springs iHub are non-exclusive, meaning that portfolio companies are welcome to take advantage of other incubators, accelerators, and mentorship programs as long as they continue to pursue job creation in the Coachella Valley.

Techstars Founder Catalyst is a ten-week pre-accelerator program that provides early-stage entrepreneurs with training, tools, and an expanded network to prepare them for the next level. Palm Springs iHub portfolio company Hello Computer, Inc. was accepted into the prestigious Founder Catalyst program and wisely took full advantage of the expanded network the program provided. The program concluded with a Pitch Showcase; you can see Hello Computer, Inc.’s closing pitch on YouTube.
