Now Accepting Applications for the CAH Startup Lab

Now Accepting Applications for the CAH Startup Lab

Dan Ariely’s Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke is now accepting applications for its second cohort of the Startup Lab, which begins October 2016.

Health and Finance startups with a keen interest in applying behavioral insights to their products and exploring original research opportunities in collaboration with our world-class researchers are invited to apply.

The CAH is looking for startup teams of 2-4 who are willing and able to be in Durham, NC for the duration of the program (October 2016-June 2017).

Strong applicants are health or finance startups committed to changing behavior for good. We are looking for teams who are passionate in their pursuit of well-researched solutions and validation through experimentation. We want to partner with teams who are intensely interested in learning more about behavioral economics and who see the implementation of behavioral insights into their product as being vital to their success.

Have we found each other? Apply for the Startup Lab here by Sunday, July 3, 2016 at 11pm EST.

The CAH will accept up to 15 startups to participate in the first segment of the Startup Lab, the Behavioral Economics Education Emphasis, from October-December 2016. In December, up to 7 teams will be selected to continue the Startup Lab program into the Collaboration Emphasis from January-June 2017. These startups will deepen their partnership with the CAH through collaborative research projects that will push their products to the next level with tailored insights from behavioral science. The Startup Lab culminates with a Research Presentation Day to present findings and how they have influenced each startup’s development.
