HOTTovation is Open for Applications

Morrisville, NC – The HOTTovation program is starting again on June 1, 2015. Applications are now open and the application period will close on April 30, 2015. An in-person interview will be scheduled within three weeks of the application deadline as part of the application process.

What is HOTTovation?

HOTTovation is a “percolator” allowing people to “perk” an idea into a sellable strategic plan. The HOTTovation program is based off of Morrisville. Morrisville is located at the ‘Heart of the Triangle’, hence the acronym of HOTT.

The program will provide free office space at Campbell University RTP campus to five companies for a period of five months. Additionally, HOTTovation participants will receive a free Morrisville Chamber membership for a year.

Participants will receive points based on the completion of activities designed to give the entrepreneur’s business a solid foundation. At the end of the five months, the participants that have successfully completed the criteria will be invited to a special graduation event. The event will provide access to businesses and individuals to the local financial and start-up community. Assistance in setting up a long-term business mentor will also be provided.

Participants will enter the program on June 1, 2015 and the program ends on October 30, 2015.
