Raleigh’s historic Boylan Heights neighborhood reflects the city’s vibrance in many ways—with a bridge that overlooks a full view of the downtown skyline, a variety of houses dating back to 1907 and an annual ArtWalk festival that’s over 20 years old. 

It’s also home to a live-in accelerator program, ThinkHouse, which just finished off its third year of existence and graduated a cohort of seven startups.
Since HQ Raleigh launched the program in 2013, ThinkHouse has helped guide early-stage startups and budding entrepreneurs through an immersive, 10-month residential fellowship.
But it doesn’t stop there. Two branches launched last year to bring the ThinkHouse’s residential peer collaboration experience to new cities and populations.
Duke TeachHouse in Durham is a two-year fellowship program in partnership with Duke University. It’s open to early-career graduates of Duke’s elementary, secondary and master of arts in teaching programs.
The brand also has a local focus, selling shirts and accessories that depict features of the Triangle.

Childs also launched a mini-documentary project with another ThinkHouse fellow, Kyle Sheats. The video series, appropriately named The Interbrew, documents the duo’s interviews with local founders over local beer. 

ThinkHouse will announce its 2016-2017 participants in early August.
