About the Summer Hardware Accelerator

Participating teams get access to:


  • Mentorship in Business, Technology, and Design
  • Rev’s co-working space in downtown Ithaca
  • State-of-the-art Prototyping Lab
  • Guest Speakers and Workshops with Industry Experts
  • Materials stipend up to $2000


The program runs from May to August with no formal program around the July 4th holiday. Teams must state that their intention is to start a business and are required to work in the space Monday through Thursday during business hours. Teams must be available to participate during the entire summer intensive.


Applications typically open in December, and admitted teams are notified in March. Our strongest teams have at least one engineer, one designer, and a business lead; Rev hosts matchmaking events to help you find the right team members, if needed.
