We’ve launched a new division @ 24.com, called 20FourLabs. The word “labs” has become synonymous with innovation ever since Google established its world-famous Google Labs. So this is where we’re drawing inspiration from, because we love Google.
So far 20FourLabs consists of about 27 very talented web people with a desire to take over the world Blue World, another well-known local startup, have joined labs and are part of our team. It’s pretty much a start-up environment, incubated within the walls of a corporate. We’re building online applications with a strong focus on mobile (wap and applications) and social networking. We’re looking for developers and web producers (site managers/product managers) to hire. We’re also partnering with universities to attract top talent. We’re looking for entrepreneurs to partner with, and we’re looking for small, hungry dev shops to work with. We’re also open to suggestions: Send them here.
Below is a presentation I recently did to MBA students from Stellenbosch University. It’s been created using Prezi which is a flash-based presentation application. It takes a bit of patience and getting used to, but it’s fun :-). The pics take a while to load and you move around by using the navigation arrows at the bottom right. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
