“Whereas incubators such as CoLab take someone with an idea and creates the skeleton of a future company or product, Lamppost Group puts the meat on the bones. It provides angel investments, facilities and a strong push out into the market.
Lamppost is recruiting 15 students from prestigious colleges nationwide for a special build-a-gigabit-app summer internship. The intern with the best app wins $50,000 from Lamppost. Interns also receive training and mentoring in eight core business skills, including sales, marketing, prototyping and design. All interns with good ideas can maintain their network accounts and relationships with Lamppost. The company and city undoubtedly will welcome them back after graduation.”
