Innovation Academy

Every Wednesday morning, Augusta’s Entrepreneurs gather for Founders Circle. Collectively we work to identify target markets, scaling strategies, resolve legal concerns, pricing models, and all manner of other things related to the life of an entrepreneur. This week we hosted our first session at the Innovation Academy at 540 Telfair Street by having each member write a Startup Haiku to help identify the core essence of what they and their business do. See if you can match the haiku to the entrepreneur before clicking the author links…and ignore the misses in 5-7-5 structure. Our authors Luke Davis, John Gibbs, Travis Smith, Grace Belangia, Scott Hardigree, and Eric Parker:

Located in a historic 1802 Schoolhouse, our space is divided into two wings. One for learning and prototyping, and one for coworking and business incubation. Our membership comes from a wide variety of backgrounds that all consider themselves some measure of hacker, maker, and doer. I am an architect. We have entrepreneurs, business people, teachers, engineers, designers, artists, and Jacks and Jill’s of all trades, and of course many software and hardware developers.
