After a highly successful programme in 2015, Lightning Lab Auckland is back for round 2! But this time it’s going to be bigger and better! The programme will run again in Auckland from March – July, 2016.
Applications have now closed for the 2016 programme. If you are interested in learning more about the accelerator now that applications have closed, or want to get involved as a mentor, partner or investor please contact Programme Director Jeff Mann.
Check out the video for highlights from the 2015 demo day.
As a digital accelerator, Lightning Lab Auckland can add more value to teams with ideas based around:
- Applications: Web/Enterprise 2.0, BI/data/analytics, gaming/simulation, etc.
- Technology: Web, SaaS, mobile, open source, data integration, middleware, etc.
The other major consideration is the team. Three founders with complementary skills is ideal, a team of two is our minimum requirement for acceptance into the programme. But again, if it’s only you and you have a great idea, talk to us. We will never turn a great idea away.
Lightning Lab is a four month programme with the first three months focussed on gaining traction in the lead up to demo day, with a final four weeks focused on raising investment.
