Picking Up Speed: The SLO Hot House Summer Accelerator

By Haley Pavone

Pashion Footwear is excited to announce that we have officially been accepted into the 2017 SLO Hot House Summer Accelerator Program! We know that this experience is going to be essential to taking our business to the next level.

In addition to earning $10,000 of equity-free funding provided by the program, we will have access to incredibly valuable mentors, resources, and an energetic and inspiring workspace surrounded by other early-stage ventures coming out of Cal Poly. We are thrilled to be a part of the program this summer, and can't wait to dive right in to making the most of it.

Our goals for the summer program include bringing on engineering assistance to test and refine our design, filing our provisional patent, and beginning to locate and negotiate with manufacturers (and, hopefully, get some wearable samples made!). We look forward to keeping you all updated on our summer progress on this blog, as well as on our Facebook and instagram accounts.
