How we help:


EIRs (entrepreneurs in residence) are veteran entrepreneurs who work directly with founders and CEOs, one-on-one. They help navigate the startup landscape and provide expert business counseling and advice in the areas of strategic planning, business development, funding, market research, partnerships, intellectual property, branding/marketing, sales, human resources and organizational development.

Mentor Network

Startups, scale-ups and small businesses often need services beyond the capabilities of their current resources, such as sales and marketing, human resources or strategic business planning. Bounce’s incubator companies have access to a network of mentors, carefully selected to meet their specific needs.


With 300,000 square feet at Bounce, there is plenty of room to grow. We offer modern coworking and office space, wet lab space and warehouse options at affordable rates. Whether you’re two people or 20, we have the space to fit your needs.

Sample Startup Roadmap

We have developed a common roadmap for companies in the Incubator. This can be customized for specific industries and company needs.
