About the OwlSpark Accelerator

Established in 2012, OwlSpark was founded to ignite a passion for entrepreneurship within the Rice community. OwlSpark provides hands-on entrepreneurship experiences and a roadmap from innovation to commercialization. At the intersection of determination, grit, versatility and passion, we have created a family of like-minded thinkers and doers, and built a network that enables entrepreneurs to do cool things that make a difference.

OwlSpark is an intense, immersive 12-week summer experience for up to ten Rice University startup teams. Utilizing a robust curriculum, collaborative coworking space, and a diverse mentor network, the OwlSpark accelerator program provides startup teams with hands-on experience launching a tech startup. The 2018 program begins May 21 and concludes August 10, and will be hosted in tandem with RED Labs, the University of Houston startup accelerator.

Program Overview

Throughout the summer, OwlSpark delivers entrepreneurship education, teaches relevant business fundamentals, pairs teams with knowledgeable mentors and industry experts, features office hours with successful entrepreneurs, and yields key connections. The accelerator culminates with the Bayou Startup Showcase, jointly hosted by OwlSpark and RED Labs. Together, these resources and collaboration provide exposure and direct access to Houston’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, increasing the probability of startup teams’ continued success beyond the program.

Internship Overview

We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about startups and entrepreneurship and are itching to roll up their sleeves and get to work. This is not a run-of-the-mill internship for the average Joe or Jane; this is an outside-the-box experience for outside-the-box thinkers and doers.
