NextEd Labs at the Bullpen

At the Forefront of Education & Innovation

Located in the Bullpen at Duke’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E), NextEd Labs is a partnership between I&E, Duke Learning Innovation, and Embark. Membership confers access to Bullpen facilities, including the ability to book rooms for meetings and events.

NextEd Labs is a mutually beneficial model that serves the Triangle’s educational startup community—with tenant companies such as WarpWire and Rewriting the Code—as well as supporting students.
