What is unique about The Ember Lab? 
We bring together a carefully curated wealth of talent and resources to give you the best foundation to grow a successful business. In our Program, you will get to work closely with industry insiders and the Ember team to build a roadmap for success; as well, we remain actively engaged in your business as long as we remain long-term partners.

What should I hope to get out of the program? 
Our goal is to be a value-added business partner for you as you scale your company.  We provide access to vital expertise, education and business development resources while also giving you the confidence to make informed decisions to grow. 

What is my time commitment and where is the workspace? 
Classes are scheduled on a rolling basis and are held in various locations throughout New York City over the course of the year. Your time commitment to the The Ember Lab includes attending our classes, events and meetings; we are here to help you grow your business and once a member of the Ember family, you will continue to benefit from our platform.

What are the costs of the program? 
There are no out of pocket cash costs for you—the The Ember Lab receives a portion of equity from participating companies based on the stage of the company.  Equity stakes generally range between 4% and 8% depending on the stage your business is in.
