Kent State University's Blackstone LaunchPad Presents Innov8athon
In Partnership with hacKSU and Kent State University Libraries
Kent State University’s Blackstone LaunchPad is hosting a 24-hour ‘Innov8athon’ on April 5 & 6 in the Kent State 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 start-ups. Those business concepts that have the highest potential for growth will be recognized with cash prizes to provide the necessary seed-funding for the venture start-up.
This event is free for all KSU students, faculty/staff and alumni to participate.
