About Us

Lair East Labs is a startup accelerator based in New York that empowers founders to expand internationally.

Our Mission

Founders face a relentless uphill battle. That’s why we at Lair East Labs are dedicated to supporting founders, wherever they are in the world.

Lair East Labs is a springboard: we propel founders along their growth trajectory by leveraging acceleration, investment and an international community of like-minded entrepreneurs.

We believe that without founders there is no innovation. And without innovation, we won’t be able to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We support founders in building successful and sustainable ventures that solve global problems.
