Between the early round in May and the final round in October, this year we received a record 60 total applicant teams and gave over 45 interviews for the twelve available eLab spots.

The final twelve have been chosen and have taken their places as the eLab Class of 2016.


From left to right: Zach Shulman, Caitlin Parrucci, Ken Rother. Caitlin and her company, Equine Design were chosen for eLab when winning the pitch contest at EaC’s Kickoff Event in September.

Updates with team members and more complete descriptions are coming soon.
