For some, summer is a time for relaxation. But for the teams in the Mix & Stir Start-Up Accelerator at CCA, it is crunch time. For eight weeks, teams hoping to found new start-up ventures come together here for studio space, support, and mentoring from the Mix & Stir Studio partners and an extensive network of mentors. It’s a lot of work, but the payoff can be huge.

Mix & Stir began as a collaboration between CCA Graduate Design faculty member Christopher Ireland, fellow faculty member and brand and innovation strategist Mary Anne Masterson, and the venture capitalist Hiroshi Wald.
