The idea of social media content being ethically and easily exchanged, and searchable, has become financially supported beyond European borders. Last week Lobster has been awarded the second largest prize of $32,500 by a Massachusetts startup accelerator, VVM. The award was given by a group of investors and fellow startups.
John Harthorn, the founder of MassChallenge, gave a great keynote, highly appreciating the quality of the businesses awarded.
The star audience for Lobster’s social media content marketplace concept eventually also included Steve Wozniak. Apple co-founder happened to be in town with a speech for 3000 people, and has held an exciting closed meeting for VVM winners. ‘It is very interesting’ said Steve to Lobster, posing with the founders for a funky Instagram photo. That’s our greatest blessing to change the world!
