Intensives

While Halcyon's full-time incubator program is extensive, involving five months of residency in D.C. and frequent programming across a wide range of topics for entrepreneurs, Halcyon Incubator intensive programs are tailored, focused experiences for specific groups of entrepreneurs. International intensives introduce entrepreneurs from abroad to the U.S. market and our network of investors and supporters, while other intensives allow us to hone Halcyon Incubator programming for different demographics or sectors. 

The Opportunity Intensive is a 10-month program designed specifically for entrepreneurs whose businesses are based in or primarily serve opportunity zones in the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia) region.

  • Monthly, day-long sessions to build skills, connect with other entrepreneurs, and receive expert advice from Halcyon's network of mentors and advisors
  • Two week-long residencies at Halcyon's facilities in Georgetown, DC
  • AWS cloud credits and technical advice from AWS Solutions Architects
  • Access to free workspace at Halcyon facilities for the duration of the program
