RED Labs Summer Accelerator Program

RED Labs Summer Accelerator Program is a 12-week program designed to help UH students, faculty and recent alumni accelerate their business or business idea. Participants spend the summer attending startup-focused or small business-focused curriculum sessions, getting advice from local business owners, meeting one-on-one with mentors to help improve their businesses, and working on their business. The program then culminates with the Bayou Startup Showcase, a demo day where RED Labs teams pitch their ideas in front of community members and mentors.
