Student Agencies
Entrepreneurship at Cornell


The eLab Application for the 2017-18 school year is open on Startup Tree. 

The Application Deadline is Monday, September 25th at 11:59 PM.

eLab is an accelerator program for Cornell student startups. Startups receive weekly one-on-one mentorship from seasoned entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship professors over a year-long program featuring 5 intensive bootcamps, eLab alum advisors, course credit, $5,000 toward their business, and access to a network of resources. eLab is not for theory; it is for launching real businesses.

eLab accepts 12 startups each year and the admission process is competitive. Those who interviewed early in the Spring and Summer will receive a Fall interview along with other applicants and are required to update their application by applying here. Fall interviews will be scheduled for the week of October 2nd, specific days and times TBA.

eLab accelerates startup business regardless of industry, profit or non-profit, small or high-growth.

If you are interested in founding a startup but have not yet taken an entrepreneurship class, take one of the many entrepreneurship courses offered on campus as soon as possible to prepare for applying to eLab.

If you have questions or are interested in joining or working for an eLab startup,  reach out to eLab Coordinator Jeremiah Cotman.
