In collaboration with Design Technologies, we are excited to announce the second year of Entrepreneurship Lab NYC, a prestigious training and mentorship program for new life sciences and healthcare technology ventures in the City.    


Each year, ELabNYC recruits 20 talented individuals and teams passionate about the world of entrepreneurship and commercializing their innovations. It is a prestigious 6-month training and coaching program to support graduate students of science, post-docs, early-career researchers and engineers interested in forming new biotech and health tech ventures. No prior business experience necessary. The program features a mini-MBA course, strategic planning assistance, and access to a community of mentors.

Last year's inaugural cycle had 18 new ventures selected from a highly competitive pool of 80 applicants. These ventures are now commercializing innovations, ranging from medical devices and research tools to therapeutics and informatics platforms, with some generating revenue.
