The Halcyon Incubator is committed to solving 21st-century challenges throughout the nation and the world. By helping social entrepreneur fellows transform audacious ideas into scalable and sustainable ventures, the Incubator acts as a catalyst for measurable social outcomes.

During the Halcyon Flagship Residential Fellowship, a diverse cohort of fellows receives free residency and workspace, mentorship and leadership coaching, robust support from business consultants, and a living stipend to develop their entrepreneurial vision.

Fellows engage with the program in two major stages:


Residency (5 months): Fellows live and work at Halcyon’s headquarters in Washington, DC, with total access to expert guidance. They participate in core programming that includes family breakfast, pitch sessions, skill series, advisor office hours, and more. Hard work and dedication during this phase culminates in a final showcase to a curated audience of partners, mentors, advisors, supporters, and potential investors.


Post-residency (13 months): Fellows continue to have access to free workspace at Halcyon, with additional resources available to build their networks, secure funding, and grow their venture.

Halcyon’s well-honed methodology fosters creativity through an environment of freedom, access, collaboration, and support. It gives prospective impact leaders the physical and mental space to freely take risks and exercise their ingenuity. By removing barriers and supplying resources, Halcyon empowers visionaries regardless of their means or circumstances, disrupting the status quo around who has access to entrepreneurship opportunities.

Applications for the Flagship Residential Fellowship are accepted twice a year. Learn more about applying here!
