ERIE, Penn. – Sphere Brake Defense (SBD) just graduated from the premier Endless Frontier Labs nine-month cohort.
Since October of 2019, SBD participated in five mentor sessions that brought together 50 promising global companies with mentors and investors to set goals and prioritize tasks rapidly accelerating business growth. Not all companies made it through program – 15 Deep Tech companies graduated.
“We are honored and grateful to have graduated from this prestigious cohort through New York University Stern School of Business,” stated Aaron Lewis, CEO of SBD. “We launched our very first commercial product, the Hydraulic Sphere Brake in partnership with Cleveland CycleWerks (www.clevelandcyclewerks.com) within seven months into the program.
“We now have access to more private and institutional investors, ongoing mentorship from successful serial entrepreneurs, and an expanded network of top-level chief technology officer’s across multiple industry leading auto manufacturers.”
“Sphere Brakes entered the Endless Frontier Labs program with the potential to revolutionize braking systems, which haven’t seen much innovation in years,” said Deepak Hegde, Director of Endless Frontier Labs. “Under AJ’s inspiring and disciplined leadership, the company has made tremendous progress towards fulfilling its promise, including expanding into the electric motorcycles segment and positioning itself to sell into several other verticals. We are excited about Sphere Brakes’ future and look forward to the company’s technology making transport on wheels safer.”
