WHAT IS LIGHTNING LAB ELECTRIC?
Lightning Lab is a four-month, mentor-intensive, business acceleration programme based on the best of breed accelerator model developed by TechStars in the US. The programme provides teams with structure, startup methodologies, business skills and focused support so they can prove, build and launch their ideas into market, with speed.
With the purpose of sparking innovation, Lightning Lab Electric and Creative HQ will work with participating ventures focusing on the future of the NZ electric industry.
“Lightning Lab Electric is the vehicle for innovation within the relatively staid energy sector. We have been working with the companies in NZ who are passionate about seeing innovation take hold in the sector – Westpac, Genesis Energy, GE and Unison – to put together a great programme to catalyse innovation,” says James Swope, Programme Manager at Lightning Lab Electric.
