Lamont assists entrepreneurs as they work through their seed funding pursuits to stimulate initial growth and adequately prepare them for follow-on funding.
Lamont brings extensive executive and management experience to the JumpStart team. Most recently, Lamont taught business and professional studies courses at Chancellor University and the Jack Welch Management Institute. He also founded Another Level Resources, an executive coaching and development firm specializing in facilitating solutions to problems for business executives.
Prior to starting this most recent entrepreneurial venture, Lamont spent 25 years in the commercial and community development banking industry and served as President/CEO at three community banks in various locations within the United States. Lamont’s ability to create environments of high achievement led to his selection as leader of two entrepreneurial businesses; one in the transportation industry and the other in the distribution industry. This experience allowed him to see business needs from a different perspective and has provided him with insight into the challenges of managing an entrepreneurial enterprise.
