We’re only seven days away from 48Hour Launch: The Learning Edition, and the moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. Over the last few weeks, we’ve heard your ideas, poured over the applications, and assembled a top-notch crew of experts to help carry them out. After much deliberation, the verdict is finally in. We have our teams, and they need your collaboration!
To get the startup wheels in motion, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the top ideas and the leaders behind The Learning Edition. Here’s what you need to know about next weekend.
JOIN A TEAM
We’ve selected eight promising startups for 48Hour Launch, and they’re looking for individuals (like you) to help build out their teams. If you want to lend a hand as a team member, mentor, or general attendee, click here to sign up for the weekend experience.
Be sure to join us at Pitch Night next Friday, March 28 to hear our startups present their ideas. The event will take place at 6 p.m. at green|spaces. This is a great opportunity to pick your favorite teams. However, if you can’t make it to Pitch Night, you can always come get involved at any point in the weekend.
