Volano is proud to partner up with Straight Shot , an Omaha based startup accelerator focused on supporting and developing young technology companies. Several senior level Volano software developers will act as mentors to Straight Shot businesses and share their experience building platforms, interfacing with clients and managing the phases of product development. This presents an exciting opportunity for us to help support the local technology community, aspiring business owners and to increase our recognition in Omaha as a big-picture collaborative partner in innovation.
Straight Shot is the brainchild of Dundee Venture Capital, an organization dedicated to investing in entrepreneurs who bring great ideas, energy and desire to succeed to the market place. Started by Mark Hasebroock, previous co-founder of giftcertificates.com and HayNeedle, Dundee VC brings an enviable amount of experience from finance and small business development to technology. There is a positive correlation between Mark’s level of humility and humor and his success in business. If Dundee VC puts an emphasis on the people behind good ideas, Volano does the same in choosing whom we do business. Straight Shot’s list of participating mentors and sponsors is an Olympic Dream Team.
Volano selected Erin Hawkins, David Carnley and John Stuifbergen to work on-site at the Peter Kiewit Institute of Technology building, our own development dream team. They will work directly with the seven companies (out of 400 applicants) selected in the Straight Shot accelerator program and look forward to lending their expertise. The start-ups we’ll be working with come with their own impressive technological pedigree and we’ll have an opportunity to learn from them as well.
