Flywheel: A Call for Projects

We're happy to announce that we have 11 interns joining us for the summer session of Flywheel Project starting June 5. They attend 8 colleges and have many different interests, but are all excited to spend the summer here at Black Lab Sports. 

We will be assigning the interns specific hands-on projects so they can both learn and deliver results to our companies as well as organizations outside of The Lab. If you have a project that would provide a great learning experience to our interns while also filling a need at your company, please send details to Michael O'Brien.

Thanks to all of you who helped us spread the word and attract quality applicants. We have high hopes for this next cohort!

The Boulder Chamber of Commerce recently bestowed a great honor upon Black Lab Sports when it named us Innovative Company of the Year. Two companies and four individuals received leadership awards, which were presented during the annual Boulder Chamber Leadership Celebration, held this year at the Dairy Arts Center.

This award is humbling and exciting- validation of everything we're building here- and it's something for you to celebrate too, since each of you plays a role in our ecosystem. Thank you so much for your continued involvement. Here are two short write-ups on the award ceremony: Daily CameraBizWest
