About

Life Changing Labs will empower 500 entrepreneurs to change the lives of 1 million people by 2027.

Who we are

Life Changing Labs was founded in 2012 by Peter Cortle to give a platform and a network for entrepreneurs at Cornell who needed a community as they developed their ventures.

After years of being the premier summer accelerator for student startups at Cornell, we have since expanded our mission to being a startup accelerator and elite network for top university entrepreneurs globally.

Our philosophy

We believe that the success of a company hinges on the growth of the people involved and the relationships that make up the team.

Our program

Each year, we select top founders for an 8-week boot camp, where we give them the skills, resources, and community they will need to accelerate their startups to match their vision.

Each summer culminates with a Demo Day, where the startups present their companies to a select panel of judges — venture capitalists, angel investors, and prominent entrepreneurs.

Demo Day is just the beginning of a lifetime membership with LCL. Accelerator graduates get an automatic invite to join Life Changing Network and lifetime access to StartupTree platform.
