We know many of you are starting your own businesses.
Springboard Mobile will accept the 10 best mobile founders in any area of mobile products, services and technology. The programme is founder-centric and will leverage the broad mobile ecosystem of platforms, operators, technologies and devices.
Springboard Mobile is entirely funded by angel investors who have built great mobile companies such as Admob, Amobee and Admeld. These Springboard angels are joined by over a hundred leading mobile, technical, financial and business mentors from around the world.
Teams that participate in Springboard will receive over $150k of free services, seed capital of up to £15k – all for 6% founder equity. However, Springboard has introduced a new option for teams that are already funded or have revenue. These teams can participate in Springboard with all the free services for only 3% founder equity.
We are back from our summer holidays, and HashBang goes on location. This episode was taped at TechHub in Google Campus, London.
The guys catch up after a short summer break. Chris’s startup Bardowl has launched and James has a new job. James does a seamless introduction to the BANG Line!
Elizabeth Varley, CEO of TechHub, joins them, digging into how she arrived in London from Australia, and her first roles in the UK. Elizabeth moves on to tell us about the inspiration for TechHub, working with Mike Butcher (of TechCrunch Europe fame) as a co-founder, bootstrapping, major milestones, working with Number 10, the appeal of London, and what’s next.
As always, listen to the podcast for the extended interview…
So another new innovation for the show is here! You can now call the BANG line and leave us a message. You may want to leave a question for us to put to a guest, suggest someone we should interview, or just leave us some good old fashion abuse
You can also get mini bio’s for Chris, James and Alpha Punk, plus listen to the lastest episode, although you probably won’t want to do that unless you have more money than sense.
