Chattanooga’s first-ever 48Hour Launch: Female Founder Edition was a huge success!

CO.LAB wants to thank all of our sponsors, judges,  mentors and participants who committed their time and talent last weekend as we celebrated women entrepreneurs. Each of our founders spent hours planning and developing viable startups and concepts. On Sunday’s Demo Night, it was clear that their hard work paid off.

Two winners each received a $10,000 prize package, but according to the judges, every idea had a “kernel of good business brewing.” Each team was encouraged to continue the impressive work that came out of the weekend.
