One of the goals of Apps & Maps Studios is to teach urban youth design and technology so that they can become entrepreneurs (see another story on this here.) It is being to bear fruits. One of our students, Nick Nicodemus, has started a start-up building mobile games, called Jumpbutton Studio. He started the company together with other young developers around the country. I am excited to form a partnership with them to further develop some of the Apps & Maps projects into commercially available products.
