We are happy to announce 11 winning startups who will be incubated in ELab’s partner spaces: CSI Center for Social Innovation, Civic Hall, NYDesigns, and LMHQ, and receive the ELab’s offerings of a rich mentorship program, a series of business workshops, talks and panels, and a variety of networking opportunities and collaborations in those partner spaces. This year’s applicant pool is diverse and passionate, with creative socially-driven business ideas that aim to make positive change, and the ELab is proud to incubate the new fellows for a whole year and looks forward to guiding them towards success!
The criteria for selecting were mainly three: the ELab’s quantitative rubric that the 24 judges filled out, the qualitative notes that the judges provided on each project and team, and finally the interest of the ELab’s partner spaces in the missions and work focus of the startups. Congratulations to the winners, thank you to all applicants of this year’s cycle, and thank you to our expert judges coming from ELab’s partners, supporters and New School faculty.
Here is the list of winning startups:
