Kent State Blackstone LaunchPad Presents Innov8athonPosted Mar. 25, 2013
Kent State University’s Blackstone LaunchPad will host a 24-hour Innov8athon on April 5 and 6 at University Libraries. The 24-hour event is for Kent State entrepreneurs, freelancers, programmers and creative students to collaborate on business ideas and explore/build the idea over 24 hours. The idea is to bring together different skill sets in an entrepreneurial environment to create new and exciting potential business startups. Those business concepts that have the highest potential for growth will be recognized with cash prizes to provide necessary seed-funding for venture startup.
This event is free and open to all Kent State students, faculty, staff and alumni who wish to participate.
Innov8athon is being hosted in partnership with University Libraries and the student organization hacKSU, which educates and builds the foundation for the strong use of contemporary technologies.
