Where Innovation

The CIE HotHouse is a community space that has been created through the efforts of Cal Poly, the San Luis Obispo Community, and the Cal Poly Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The goal of the CIE HotHouse is to support students and community members alike as they work to create new innovations and start business ventures.


Inspired by the participatory culture of the open source movement and the empowering nature of IT, co-working is a synergistic shared work environment.
