ECL was a startup studio that advised or incubated early stage startup companies.
James Johnson, Rich Littlehale and Dan Loewenherz (friends from college) cofounded ECL in 2011 after building and selling two side projects, BreakUpNotifier and CrushNotifier.
The goal was to continue building and testing internal product ideas and focus on helping entrepreneurs build their products and companies from the idea stage.
From 2011 - 2014, ECL advised and helped build over thirty startups, a handful of which have sold or become important businesses in their sectors.
More than anything, the ECL principals feel fortunate to have developed relationships and worked with incredible entrepreneurs who have continued or gone on to build companies collectively employing hundreds of people.
