HMC INQ is a 10-week intensive startup program modeled very *very* closely after YC, but based in Santa Monica and only open to (all) HMC graduates.
Startups admitted receive $120K via a YC SAFE usually capped at $2M (depending on the state of your startup), office space during the program (optional), ongoing guidance from our mentors, tons of legal and cloud services credit, invaluable peer support, weekly dinners with fantastical guest speakers... all culminating with Demo Day on November 2nd, 2018.
The brain child of Josh Jones (HMC '98, DreamHost co-founder and Bitcoin fractional Billionaire) and Gary Evans (HMC Ruth and Harvey Berry Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership), HMC INQ requires all companies that apply have at least one HMC graduate as a co-founder (with at least 20% equity).
But wait, there's more...
The deadline for applications is May 28th, 2018. We accept four to six companies per (yearly) class, with decisions made by July 13th.
Also, if you're an HMC alum interested in being an HMC INQ partner, or a business that would like to offer resources to our companies, or have any questions at all, just email Josh Jones for help!

On Monday, October 29th in Santa Monica from 1-4pm (presentations start at 2pm) the latest batch of HMC INQ-funded founders present their companies to a room full of specially selected investors and press.
Then, on Wednesday, November 2nd in San Francisco we'll have another Demo Day, along with other Los Angeles-based incubated companies from accelerators like Techstars LA, Make in LA, Amplify, Science, Colab, and Mucker Labs.
(There's a 5C-only Demo Day Sunday, October 28th at Mudd from 3-6pm.)
