ExCITE Riverside Moving to a new location

Utilize Our Platform

ExCITE Riverside, a popular startup accelerator in downtown Riverside, California, will move out of its current building and shift to another location at Lime Street Building in Downtown Riverside. The accelerator has signed a lease agreement for the new space.

The new space will be larger, and the accelerator plans to move startups currently housed with it to the new building starting Nov 2021.

ExCITE was housed in its current Riverside County location for over five years. Over the past few months, the accelerator sought a new space that best fits ExCITE’s needs while still being able to provide subsidized space for the startups being accelerated.

About ExCITE Riverside

Startempire Wire wrote about ExCITE’s role in fostering the entrepreneurial culture here in Riverside. The accelerator runs a 6-12 month startup accelerator program and facility for technology startups. What startups should expect to reap out of their acceleration period at ExCITE is:

  • Mentorship
  • Liquidity opportunities
  • Lab space and specialized equipment, along with networking opportunities

Jennifer Yturralde currently serves as the accelerator’s ‘Programs and Outreach Specialist’ at UCR’s Office of Technology Partnerships.

One of the key resources the accelerator’s management has developed for startups is the “Startup Toolbox’. It consists of bundled-up services and pre-negotiated packages of local law firms and banks, HR benefits, accounting services, and CRO referrals.

Instead of a startup searching for these services individually, the accelerator provides these services through these partner service providers at a discounted rate and, in many cases, free of cost.
