Capital Factory

The Capital Factory Incubator is a seed stage mentoring program for startups that provides weekly mentoring sessions with mentors and investors who have built, scaled, and sold lean startups themselves.

Startup companies apply to participate for an extended period of time requiring that they live in Austin if accepted. The Incubator program is intended to get a startup pointed in the right direction with a clear path to profitability and growth, while also giving its Austin startups a competitive advantage in attracting talent, mentors, press and funding.

The Incubator provides on-going education and training via a curriculum that covers both basics and dives deep into topics like customer acquisition, fundraising, business development, company strategy and much more. These courses are taught by our mentors and outside experts that have gone around the block multiple times with the topics they teach.
