Entrepreneur Lab by CIEE


We are eLab by CIEE

eLab is a 6 or 12-week entrepreneurship program run by a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization called CIEE. Since 1947, CIEE has helped thousands of people gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available.

What we do

eLab is a program where aspiring entrepreneurs are guided through the process of starting their own business. We foster the development of young entrepreneurial minds that come to us from across the globe and introduce them to the start-up scene in London or Berlin. We give entrepreneurs the practical skills, networking opportunities, and step-by-step guidance they need to build their businesses from the ground up.

We do this by:

  • Offering the most comprehensive lineup of exchange programs and services available.
  • Assembling the greatest resources and the most experienced, passionate lecturers and guest speakers in the start-up scene.
  • Ensuring that weekly individualized and group coaching sessions as well as expert mentoring are available to evaluate and improve business models.

The benefits of eLab

Our 6-week program will leave you with a business model and roadmap, so you can put your ideas into action as well as a pitch deck to present to potential co-founders, investors, and incubators. We assess your individual business goals and needs to help you find the best solutions to your problems. Plus, we’ll connect you directly with experts and mentors in your field of industry as well as some of the greatest minds in the start-up scene. Not to mention, the coaching and guidance that you receive here will leave you confident and ready to start your business venture.
