GE and Omnicom’s OMD have partnered to create a 10-week incubator bringing together the brightest student entrepreneurs to work in New York City for the Summer of 2012. Now in its second year, the GE | OMD Incubator aims to create a collaborative environment where entrepreneurs can learn, thrive and build great digital products.
Located in the heart of Manhattan, the GE | OMD Incubator provides a space where accepted applicants will develop their ideas, learn from industry mentors and become entrenched in New York City’s startup scene. In addition, participants will learn and meet with key marketing and advertising executives to help build their companies.
As part of the program, selected entrepreneurs will receive complimentary work space, mentorship from GE and OMD executives, free access to classes at General Assembly weekly sessions with founders and product/design leads from notable startups, compensation throughout the summer, and most importantly, no equity exchange. At the end of the summer, participants will have the opportunity to pitch to GE and OMD executives for the chance to win $10,000.
