About Mountain Lab

Mountain Lab is one part accelerator, one part design firm, and two parts technology all shook up.

We operate in two different but overlapping ways.

1 - We offer design services. Everything from graphic design, industrial design, user experience design, engineering design, architectural design, and more are all in our realm of expertise.
2 - We are a community business accelerator and workshop where anyone can come and learn to use design and fabrication tools to create prototypes for their start-up business or their own enjoyment.
