This week, NMotion hosted our first LNK Exchange company: Streamweaver.
Keevin O’Rourke and Weston Merrill traveled from Cedar Rapids Iowa on Wednesday to get a taste of the LNK startup community. These two co-founded Streamweaver and are part of the Iowa Startup Accelerator’s 2016 cohort.
Streamweaver is an influencer marketing service for Twitch and eSports. It helps connect influential gamers across YouTube, Twitch, and Mobcrush with brands that want to sponsor and endorse them.
As part of a new program called LNK Exchange, we wanted to give Keevin and Wes an opportunity to get quickly plugged into our startup community. They started the day by presenting at 1 Million Cups . They then toured the Haymarket area and got an inside look at The Nonprofit Hub, Opendorse, and Bulu Box.
The highlight of the day was our Founder Lunch where we invited Blake Lawrence from Opendorse, Cory Scott from LiveBy, and Josh Koterba from Gear Supply Co. to join the Streamweaver team for lunch at Leadbelly. These founders got to have a great conversation about influencer marketing and those early steps in launching a new startup.
Finally, Wes and Keevin got to spend the rest of the day working at Fuse.
Through LNK Exchange, Lincoln is opening its doors to outside entrepreneurs to show them our unique community. Be on the lookout for our next visiting entrepreneur!
