MORTAR at Bounce

Thank you for your interest in MORTAR! Please read the following BEFORE you start your application.

ALL of the sections must be completed. If you aren’t sure about an answer, please just put your best guess. There is not a save function on the form, so it is suggested that you complete the form in one sitting without exiting this page. OR another option is to type answers into an external document (like Microsoft Word) and then come back here to copy and paste the text into this form so that you will not lose your work.


MORTAR at Bounce would like to congratulate you for taking this first step of completing this application!

Because we want to make sure that we’re able to offer personalized attention to each participant, we limit each cohort to about 15 members. That said, we’ll do all that we can to get you through the process quickly and painlessly. After receiving your completed application, here’s what you can expect from our process:

The next step is for us to review your submitted applications, focusing on the uniqueness of your business and overall viability (this is why it’s really important to be thorough on the application).

If you’re selected to move on, the final step is to come in for an in-person interview with our selection committee. Selected participants will be notified if they’ve made it into the next class (if you aren’t selected for THIS class, you may be placed on the waiting list for the next class).

If you ARE selected for the next class, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable $50 deposit to hold your spot for the class. Before the first class session, you will be required to pay your remaining balance OR submit a payment plan for the remaining balance.

YOUR ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY. If you miss more than three classes, you will not be permitted to graduate or participate in the Pitch Night festivities. If there are barriers prohibiting you from holding up your end of this arrangement (example: finances, transportation), please let us know and we will see what can be done to accommodate your needs.

At this time, MORTAR at Bounce is only accepting FOR-PROFIT entrepreneurs and businesses. If you are a nonprofit seeking assistance, please contact Selina Garcia at to learn more about our other GROW programs.
