Once identified as a top company through the Institute’s Venture Accelerator program, a company becomes eligible for one of three spots at the CSU Hatchery. The Hatchery is a thriving and mutually beneficial partnership between the Institute for Entrepreneurship and the Rocky Mountain Innosphere, located in Old Town Fort Collins.
Start-ups fully incubate under guidance from the Institute for
Entrepreneurship. The partnership with RMI provides additional support to help companies transition from start-up to profitable business. The Hatchery office space – comfortable, fully furnished, and functional thanks to our generous donor OfficeScapes – provides member companies a controlled and supportive environment to grow in for 12 months. Hatchery companies also enjoy the benefits and services RMI provides for member companies.
