In the summers of 2014 and 2015, the Farley Center ran an Accelerator for early-stage companies run by students who wanted to work on their ventures all summer. Students spent the summer prototyping, working closely with faculty mentors and attending workshops on topics ranging from pitching to crowdfunding to intellectual property.
As of fall 2015, the responsibility for accelerator and like programs lies with The Garage.
The following companies were started through the Summer Accelerator program at the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship:
