After several years of bicoastal entrepreneurship, AI engineer and blockchain expert Joshua Armah moved from Silicon Valley to Omaha. As an “ecosystem builder,” he wants to grow and support the startup scene there and help more people in the region become tech founders.

Last year, he launched Waise Capital, a “research driven impact investment & venture philanthropy firm” headquartered in San Francisco. One of his venture partners is Roger Kassebaum, a Nebraska native and retired STEM teacher who recently returned to Omaha after 20 years in Santa Monica, CA.

The two were instrumental in bringing a virtual chapter of the global pre-seed startup accelerator Founder Institute to the region. You can sign up for an infosession to learn about the first four-month Founder Institute Omaha-Lincoln Virtual 2020 pre-seed accelerator program.
