An entrepreneurial incubator of sorts is launching in Stockton.
On August 14, Huddle Cowork and the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will hold the Entrepreneur Lab program in Downtown Stockton.
The goal of the program is to give tech startups a chance to grow.
According to a statement released by the program, “The program will incubate eight to 10 companies per round, with a goal of two 21-week rounds per year.”
Companies are being sought in Stockton and the surrounding regions. Those that are chosen to participate will be required to relocate their company to Stockton. They will receive one-on-one training to prepare them for competition in the global market.
“The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is excited about the continued partnership with Huddle and their mission to educate and assist entrepreneurs and micro-businesses in San Joaquin County,” said Bob Gutierrez, President of SJCHCC. “Our shared vision and collaborative partnership is sure to bring great opportunity to the region’s future businesses.”
The incubator is connected to the Bay Area through its co-management with George Parrish, who is a startup consultant sitting on the boards of 12 startups in the Bay Area.
“Time and again, it has been proven that great ideas can come from anywhere,” Parrish, a Stockton native, said. “It is the execution of those ideas that brings great companies to the fore. The entrepreneur spirit is alive, well and thriving at Entrepreneur Lab.”
The lab offers free workspace, mentorship and access to capital networks.
