"We've been listening to our Founders and we've learned a lot about why the experience with Comcast NBCUniversal's LIFT Labs program is different than what's in the market...that's part of the reason why we transformed these two marquee programs into one super program that we think is addressing what we've heard from founders, as well as meeting the moment of the market, as well as meeting the moment of our company, which is really at an interesting point in its lifecycle and looking towards what's next."
– Laura Plunkett, Head of LIFT Labs & Executive Director, Startup Engagement, Comcast NBCUniversal
This week's VentureFuel Visionaries are Laura Plunkett and Luke Butler, Executive Director of Startup Engagement at Comcast. They talk about the evolution of the Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs Accelerator and its first theme: Generative AI.
Laura and Luke share why they now offer multiple programs throughout the year, open to various stages of startups, and all aligned to strategic areas of interest for the core business. We go deep on the value to startup founders, the value to Comcast, and what other corporates can learn from the opportunity.
