The Finalists Pitch Night was packed and a big success. It was a night of courage, passion, and pride for the Elab and 13 teams that came out of Parsons/New School to create their businesses and trigger social change. With a wide spectrum of projects ranging from a mobile app/platform for real-time monitoring and evaluation of municipal spending on infrastructure in developing countries to a business subscription platform for the personal pleasure industry, the applicants brought their best to the room and presented in a 10-minute pitch format to a jury of 24 judges consisting of ELab’s external partners, investors, mentors, alumni and Parsons faculty.
The finalists are on an exciting entrepreneurial journey and the ELab will be announcing the winners on November first, for the 12-Month Incubator Fellowship program . Winners will receive a whole year of benefit from ELab’s including: community memberships, seats at co-working spaces, mentorships with brilliant industry leaders and workshops on relevant topics that will push their businesses towards success. We are very proud of our graduates and wish them all the best of luck.
The ELab has consistently been collecting data through surveys and rubrics for research and iteration as this is all a learning process for everyone. We are excited to be in this vibrant time of the year and continue to connect with professionals for the growth of the students, the ELab, and the Parsons community.
