Join us at the lab at 6PM on Thursday, April 16th for our 2015 Evening of Innovation!


The stars of the evening are the teams from our 2015 CRUNCH Student Design Challenge + Incubator. Six teams are competing to become AIL's 2015-2016 Start-Up-In-Residence and get $10K in startup funding:

  • ElemenTerra
  • Prefound
  • HexCare
  • Louder
  • Prevail Games
  • Stunt Players

Each team has completed the CRUNCH challenge, our 8-week course designed to turn their ideas into startup successes through skill-based activities on topics such as determining your minimum viable brand and discovering ways to motivate customers. Teams will pitch their ideas and together we'll choose next year's Start-Up-In-Residence!

During the event, you'll also be able to meet some of our student entrepreneurs through the Blackstone LaunchPad USC and chat with lab personnel about our current Edison Project experiments, in-progress prototypes, and extended explorations into the trends and technologies reshaping the media and entertainment industry.

We look forward to seeing you!
