Two Brooklyn startups have been accepted into a prestigious Manhattan accelerator, Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator.

Bonbouton and PCB:NG will join the four-month summer cohort and the ERA network of experts and investors. Companies in ERA receive $100,000 in funding in exchange for 8 percent equity in the startup.

Two Brooklyn companies were in last winter’s cohort, TwoSen.se and Payfully, both of which have found success from the program.

Bonbouton, based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s 1776NY incubator, makes smart clothes laced with graphene, a super thin sheet of carbon which can be freakishly strong and conductive at freakishly thin widths. According to the company, its clothes monitor “skin temperature, heart rate, sweating, and muscle motion.”

PCB:NG is a printed circuit board manufacturer that allows companies to upload files and sends back printed circuit boards. The company says it offers PCBs at 90 percent lower costs than other manufacturers in the space, and has the goal of “making electronics manufacturing accessible for everyone.”

ERA has graduated a good number of startups that have gone on to become successful. Some other previous Brooklyn startups include Dog Parker and Kitsplit have all thrived in recent months. In all, ERA’s alumni have over a $1 billion in market cap.
