Nick O’Neill has recently posted a great interview with Sean Greene of Lauchbox Digital up on his blog Social Times. Sean talks about how Launchbox Digital is here to help give interactive and digital media companies and entrepreneurs the foundation they need to get ahead of their competition. This foundation means everything from a chunk of money to advice from the smartest people in the area.
I think what Launchbox Digital is doing for the Washington DC area tech scene is great. I hope a lot of people will apply for their Spring/Summer 2008 Program.
Early stage investment firm LaunchBox Digital has opened it’s doors in Washington DC. They’re looking for new entrepreneurs who’re looking for some help make their dreams a reality. This includes investment capital, mentoring, and help with access to the right people. It operates much like Y Combinator.
Being someone who acts from time to time as an advocate for the DC technology community, this makes me very excited. I can’t wait to see what kind of new ideas come out of the LaunchBox Digital 2008 program.
This has definitely gone a long way towards awakening the entrepreneurial spirit in a lot of folks, which is exciting.
